Emmanuel College, Cambridge

Located in the heart of the centre of Cambridge and situated within the Cambridge Historic Core Conservation Area, Emmanuel College comprises over 25 structures which are designated from Grade II listed through to Grade I. With the site having an abundance of history since its founding in 1584 and with its distinct identity as an academic institute, the college is now looking to evolve with a series of new developments.

The Emmanuel College project will include the transformation of a neglected part of the college site into new internal and external social spaces as well as the creation of a new café/social space in the existing South Court building. There are also plans to provide more student accommodation with 80 to 90 new en- suite undergraduate rooms to prepare for a higher student population. These improvements to the graduate living accommodation will aim to reduce the college’s running costs by centralising operations on the site.

The project will also include the refurbishment of the Grade II-listed Furness Lodge building which is adjacent to the college campus. Working sensitively to the historic nature of the building, this refurbishment will provide a new student bar, teaching/office accommodation and graduate study spaces. A new below ground car park will be created as well for the site.
