The Garden Building Lincoln College Oxford

Gill, Jonathan The Garden Building Lincoln College Oxford. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




The Garden Building at Lincoln College is a fine Edwardian structure, designed by the Architects Read & MacDonald, which forms the east side of the Fellows' Garden and the south side of the smaller Rector's Garden. It was designed in the style of the later 17th century and the exterior is adorned with various garlands, carved motifs and classical details. The warm, honey-coloured stone has mellowed and the building complements its collegiate setting and the immaculate lawn to its front. The interior is also carefully designed with joinery details such as panelling, architraves, dados and skirtings as well as stone details and domed rooflights. The building is currently being enlarged and refurbished in a development which will also see the replacement of a single storey range which originally formed a lecture room in the Edwardian Garden Building. A programme of building recording has been undertaken prior to the start of the development and during the initial soft-strip works. This has produced an archive record of the building and it has also enhanced understanding of the primary structures, particularly of the previously hidden features such as the roof trusses and primary ventilation ducts.
