Bonn Square, Oxford, UK
Winner, RIBA International Competition, 2005
Our project has radically transformed the character of Bonn Square. It is now a flexible, events space which provides a venue for both formal and informal civic events, as well as being a safe and accessible backdrop to the life of the city.
The redevelopment of Bonn Square demonstrates that contemporary design can meaningfully engage with historic context, and has created an important legacy for the city of Oxford. It is now a well-used and much appreciated asset for all residents and visitors to the city.
As the flagship project in the redevelopment of the Oxford’s west end, and a keystone in the City Council’s Area Action Plan, Bonn Square has been a catalyst for further local regeneration and a wider programme of public realm initiatives throughout the city.
