The demolition of the Radcliffe Infirmary exposed a long blank façade as the college had long turned its back on the hospital.

An exchange of land allowed a development on this edge site containing new student rooms thus meaning the college can re-orientate its grounds towards a new Humanities faculty.

Just six metres deep by 175 metres long the site is just big enough for a row of rooms with a connecting corridor. Externally it creates one side of a new, yet to be completed street.
