Garden Building Lincoln College

The refurbishment and extension of the Garden Building represents a sensitive and demure inclusion amongst the rarefied building stock of Lincoln College.

Converted into a lecture hall and performance space in the 1970s, the reborn arts centre now hosts exhibitions, public lectures, operas and plays.

Our design utilised a combination of mixed-mode ventilation with heat recovery, good daylighting and an efficient, air-tight envelope. The building now features high quality internal environments with minimal energy consumption. Heating and cooling are provided by an efficient air source heat pump discretely located in a specially-designed rooftop plant-well.
