Lerner Court, Clare College, Cambridge

Client: Clare College, Cambridge

RMA produced a landscape masterplan and detailed proposals for the new Gillespie Centre at Memorial Court, Clare College. This building defines a new court for the College that completes the original Gilbert Scott masterplan for the site.

The courtyard space is laid out around a central lawn in the tradition of many college courts, but its detailing reflects the contemporary architecture of the rear building. The space contains a specimen semi-mature Scholar’s Tree, providing a focal point for the space and a degree of privacy.
