Award winners 2019

With standing room only, the results were announced at St. John’s College, recognising the positive contribution they make to Oxford and its green setting.   Eleven plaques were awarded to include conservation and the external Stone Cleaning at Balliol College which adds to the enjoyment of Broad Street, the Restoration of Keble College Dining Hall, the Conservation of the Danby Arch at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens.  The New Buildings category was particularly varied this year from the University’s RIBA award winning Beecroft Building, St. John’s Library & Study Centre, New College’s Clore Music Studios, the Blenheim Estate Office and Housing at the Dora Carr Close development in Northway.   

Science Oxford Centre & Wood Centre for Innovation at Stansfeld Park brought together new buildings and the natural environment which was matched by other public realm improvements recognised and the works to the Thames Towpath, together with the little-known Grates Medieval Wall just behind the Cowley Centre.

As we look forward to this year’s Light Festival we were also delighted to recognise TORCH for last year’s Son et Lumiere at the Radcliffe Infirmary, in our new category for Temporary Projects.
