The ISIS building, for educational client EF International, was nominated for the RIBA South East Awards in 2014.
The building on Pullens Lane, Oxford, provides new facilities for several hundred students to learn English
whilst undertaking a varied extra curriculum.
Openess and light are themes that underpin the design, with vistas through the building linking dining and reception spaces back to a central feature stair.
Students and staff voted the new building as ‘EF International School of the Year 2014’. EF are established in close to 500 locations spread accross no less than 50 countries.
The Oxford Preservation Trust also awarded the building a Design Commendation in 2013.
The judges “ praised the architectural coherence of design that the school has brought to the site formerly occupied by Plater College. The glazed facade to the entrance works particularly well and positively invites you to pass over the threshold”.
