We produced this winning scheme as part of the assessments of two sites in central Oxford to realise the Oxford Trust’s vision of a new Science Centre in the heart of Oxford. ‘Science Central’ was to be a new landmark, and an iconic, green building.
The assessments were carried out in competition with another selected Oxford based architect, and included concept designs to assess physical fit, and planning & cost viabilities to assess deliverability.
The preferred site was being offered for sale by its owner by competitive bidding, and we then developed our scheme to support the Oxford Trust’s winning bid.
The scheme includes a Planetarium, themed exhibition spaces, laboratories, offices, a café, and rooftop restaurant.
