Frankham Architects recommissioned by The Rhodes Trust

DRONE-PHOTO-LR-(2MB)-webWe are pleased to announce that our team of architects in Oxford have recently been commissioned by The Rhodes Trust to develop ideas for a new semi subterranean Hall of Residence for Rhodes Scholars to be set within the grounds of Rhodes House. This follows on from the successful Feasibility Study undertaken by our team to illustrate how the Grade 2 Listed House & Garden of The Rhodes House in Oxford could be developed as an International School of Diplomacy by using a large subterranean area previously used by The Bodleian Library to store outsourced books.


Options currently range from 54 to 124 Post Graduate Rooms, also doubling up as temporary residential accommodation for VIP delegates intending to attend activities within the new ‘Rhodes Forum’ (the adjacent redeveloped House and subterranean space) outside of normal Teaching periods.


The initial Residential Accommodation Feasibility Study is to be completed in February 2016, illustrating a landscaped new central garden with several floors of new rooms looking in and onto this new green central space.
