Blue Boar Court

Trinity College, Cambridge

Description

The site is located in Central Cambridge on the east side of Trinity Street, across from the main college, and was the site of the former Blue Boar Inn.

The project was to provide new student residential accommodation, a 150-seat lecture theatre and a Junior Combination Room. Existing student rooms along Trinity and Green streets were to be refurbished and the commercial space beneath extended into the site. 

Four ranges of new accommodation formed a new court and defined yards between it and the existing perimeter accommodation. New entrances to these were created at first-floor level, safe inside the College boundary.

The project was carried out by Sandy Wright at MacCormac, Jamieson Prichard and Wright.
