St John’s College, OxfordOxford
‘The Library & Study Centre will be an inspiring space for students and scholars now and for centuries to come - a place to think, read, reflect and write, and to enjoy.
This beautiful addition to the fabric of St John's will double the current number of seats available for readers and double the present shelving space for the collections. It will bring the old and new parts of the College together physically and once again position the library facilities at the heart of St John's. ’ Professor Maggie Snowling CBE

Proposals are for a new library extension and refurbishment of the existing library to increase reader numbers and book capacities. New Special Collections suites and Seminar Rooms are introduced.
The building is being designed to0 have a zero carbon footprint.
