Girton College, Cambridge
Ash Court is a new residential wing at Girton College, Cambridge which provides 50 student en-suite bedrooms, gym accommodation and an indoor swimming pool. The new facilities also form a hub for conference guests outside of term time.
Designed as a natural extension of the existing college and continuing its valued brick cloister, the new building takes a linear form and is flanked by a stone colonnade which addresses a new landscaped courtyard.
The college had set very ambitious environmental targets and the design drew on the pioneering PassivHaus approach which yields extremely low levels of energy consumption.
