In Progress: University of Winchester


As part of the 175th anniversary celebrations of the University of Winchester, the RIBA award-winning architecture practice Design Engine are to refurbish and extend the university's Victorian chapel. A striking, gold coloured metal clad structure will subtly join onto the original chapel which was built in 1880. Luke Hughes® has been asked to design and install 19 5-seater Chaterhouse benches crafted from solid European oak to furnish both spaces.

Already used for a variety of uses, the existing chapel will be supported by the new addition to increase facilities for worship, concerts and student functions. We'll be bringing you exclusive updates from the project over the coming months.
