Pembroke College, Cambridge, 2024

Transformation of the College within the city centre

This project forms part of the redevelopment of the Mill Lane site, which provides a unique opportunity for significant expansion of Pembroke College within the city centre. The proposals include a new residential court and restoration of a number of historic significant buildings, linked by landscaped open spaces that continue and extend the language of Pembroke’s distinctive gardens. The new and existing buildings will provide graduate accommodation, teaching spaces, and publicly accessible facilities including a gallery and a performance venue.

The listed Emmanuel United Reform Church will become a space for music, performance and lectures, providing a new communal asset to serve the College, the University and the wider public. Together, the development will provide a range of versatile, adaptive and flexible spaces, which will serve a range of activities that express Pembroke’s enduring commitment to world-class research, teaching and the exchange of ideas. Phase one is on site now and will complete in 2022, followed by Phase two in 2025.
