Sloane Robinson Building, Keble College, Oxford, UK

Rick Mather
Date Built
Opened October 5, 2002
Newman Quad
Having built the ARCO building in the Newman Quad of Keble College in the 1990s, Rick Mather returned to complete the quad with his Sloane Robinson Building.  The college says that Mather, "... designed the building to complement ARCO and used similar materials such as the slate floor, the imaginative glass panels and the formed staircase."

The first two floors of the building are home to a theatre accommodating an audience of 250.  The seating is retractable and the staging can be moved making the space very adaptable to a variety of uses.  On the third floor are the Douglas Price Room (a multi-purpose room) and the Andrew and Christine Hall Music Room (designed to be sound-proof and appropriate for small recitals).  On the floor above there are six seminar rooms and above them are 20 study bedrooms.
