Westgate Oxford RIBA South Award


Westgate Oxford has won a 2019 RIBA South Award. The judges described the innovative, mixed-use development as monumental in its ambition and scale.

The effective collaboration between renowned and experienced practices on a vast scale is impressive. However, what really made Westgate stand out was the level of humanity it has achieved in terms of materials, textures and space making. The redevelopment of Bonn Square has vastly elevated the area and not only given a front door to the scheme, but it has simultaneously uplifted a fairly uninviting public space, further attracting the community into the centre.

Developed by the Westgate Oxford Alliance – a partnership between Landsec and The Crown Estate – this multi award winning project was designed in collaboration with Lead Architect and Masterplanner BDP as well as Allies and Morrison, Panter Hudspith Architects and Glenn Howells.
