This week we’ve been excited to see some of the exterior of Cohen Quadrangle! As scaffolding starts to come down the upper floors have been revealed on both Walton Street and Worcester Place.
You can begin to get a sense of the dramatic new roof and dormer windows and how they curve into the brickwork of the original Edwardian building. The chequerboard look of the roof is very clear and striking but remains very muted in colour, as planned.
The views over Jericho are stunning, particularly from the full glass dormer which can be seen in the picture above, just where the scaffolding restarts along Worcester Place.
With clear views over the Blavatnik School of Government and the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, this dormer window provides a special recess on the top floor in which you can reflect over the dreaming spires.
Work continues apace and it won’t be long before even more of the building will be visible.
