Wilson Court, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

About The Project

Wilson Court is a direct response to the buildings from the two preceding periods of development on the Fitzwilliam College site, by Denys Lasdun and MacCormac Jamieson Prichard.  Wilson Court continues the perimeter development concept of the earlier buildings, observing the scale, treatment and materials, while still having an individuality of its own. It houses 48 acoustically independent student rooms as well as a lecture theatre and conference rooms in a three-storey L-shaped brick building, enclosing an intimate courtyard. The elevation pattern corresponds to the configurations of the study bedrooms with their rectangular and square planes, some of which intermittently protrude and recess creating a dynamic relief to the brick facades.
