Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge, Cambridge

Project details:
Founded in the 19th century, Hughes Hall is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge and the oldest of just four colleges that admit only mature students, most of whom are on postgraduate study programmes.

Gresham Court – a £12 million new student accommodation building - is the most recent development at the Hughes Hall site. Located in a residential Victorian street close to the centre of Cambridge, the new building contains 85 student rooms, all with attractive interior and en-suite bathrooms, a dedicated on-site laundry facility and communal study rooms.

The new accommodation required outdoor seating around the external courtyard, to separate hard and soft landscape areas and to fit between structural columns of the building. Furnitubes designed and manufactured three bespoke benches comprising oiled oak-slatted side and seating panels mounted on a galvanised steel frame. The seating surfaces were made removable so that the benches could be bolted down and the ground fixings hidden internally.
