This simple linear building, known as the Rosalind Franklin Building, provides new post-graduate student accommodation for Newnham College and forms the enclosure to a new graduate garden. The pitched-roof building is divided into five units, each containing two one-bedroom flats at ground level and a shared student house for eight arranged at first and second floor levels.
Facades are organised to present an open, western aspect to the garden and the College, and a more secure aspect east to the town. Materials follow those of Basil Champneys’ original College buildings: red brick, white painted joinery, grey metal and clay roof tiles.
