Our project for Foundress Court provided Pembroke with an entirely new college court built in college grounds, located very close to the historic centre of Cambridge. The Court is a single entity formed by ranges of buildings mainly for residential use, but that also house a variety of teaching-related spaces.
The complex nature of this building in an urban context between town streets and a collegiate interior is illustrated by the 15 elevations that make up the exterior. The building is a single entity of several parts which are: the Master’s Lodge, a family dwelling that can either absorb or shed bedrooms at the second floor whilst offering two large collegiate function rooms; 92 student rooms; a modest car park and a basement with storage; computing; music and gym facilities.
