Wright & Wright wins RIBA Award for Magdalen College Oxford
Winner of 2017 RIBA National Award for University projects, Wright & Wright Architects refurbished the 19th Century Buckler Building and added new library accomodation at Magdalen College Oxford. A key feature was bespoke versions of Aktiva's B-Square for the bookshelf and desk light fittings. Their brushed stainless steel finishes fitted well into the oak and steel interior-frame structure that trebled the study accomodation as well as housing 3,200 linear metres of books.
