Griphon House, Cambridge

Downing College, Cambridge

Robert Lombardelli Partnership provided architectural services for the design, construction, and conversion of this building located in the conservation area of Cambridge city centre. The scheme consists of the conversion of the upper floors with a change of use from offices to student & conference accommodation, the construction of an additional third floor, as well as a new four storey extension to the rear containing the new staircase, lift and building entrance.

The accommodation comprises 22 high quality en-suited study/bedrooms, and communal kitchen and dining facilities. The rooms will also be part of the college’s conference portfolio for use out of term time. The project also includes the re-landscaping of the car park and additional bike storage facilities.
