WESTGATE RETAIL QUARTER

Oxford

Masterplan proposals for this key central Oxford site provide new and enhanced retail space as part of a wider regeneration of the Westgate area. New east-west routes define discrete retail building plots, each linked by a new arcade running north-south. The project also includes new residential buildings, a multi-storey car park, a new public square and a unique roof garden with views across Oxford.

The Market Building occupies the centre of the site and has a central arcade on two levels. Its simple orthogonal plan is divided into shop-front bays, expressed as a series of gables clad in black terracotta slats.
