Abell Nepp - King's College Cambridge Chetwynd Court

King's College Cambridge Chetwynd Court

Abell Nepp has won a design competition to modernise and expand the Chetwynd Court and lower levels of the surrounding buildings, and has completed RIBA Stage 1 services.

Grade I and II listed buildings partly enclose the Court which is in the southeast quarter of the College grounds. The existing buildings will be linked by a new glass 'Pavilion' in the SW corner of the Court. The surrounding ground floor spaces will be refurbished to meet the requirements of students and staff, including new social, academic and conference areas, in addition to a coffee shop and bar.

To minimise heritage impact, an underground building beneath the Court will house a 200-seat multipurpose auditorium, for events and performances. The space will support a wide range of acoustic environments: from classical recital to speech to electro-acoustic.
