Lincoln College

Numbers 1 through to 23 Museum Road were a block
of Victorian terraced houses which were refurbished to
provide student accommodation. An opening from the
road through two of the middle houses was formed from
ground to first floor level to access, what was originally,
the rear gardens. This enabled the construction of three
further linked blocks to provide additional student
accommodation, lecture theatre, multifunction room, laundry,
porters lodge and basement storage, plant and switch room
areas. Each floor has a common kitchen dedicated for the
students on that landing use. The bedrooms are self contained,
each with a shower, wardrobe, bed and study area.

Following completion of the project, Lowe & Oliver were retained
to undertake fitting out of various areas and lecture rooms direct
for the college.
