Our Cambridge office is based in the heart of this bustling university city, three minutes away from Cambridge Station and just across the road from Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
Cambridge’s architectural character is often defined by the city’s many university buildings, the oldest of which dates back to 1248. However, there is archaeological evidence of settlements existing around the Cambridge area since prehistoric times, as well as architectural evidence of Roman occupation in the form of a fort on Castle Hill, and farmsteads across the wider area.
Many of these centuries-old structures are surrounded by more contemporary buildings, creating a visible timeline of architecture throughout the city.
Whitworth were appointed in the creation of a larger premises for the City of Cambridge Rowing Club along the River Cam. The former boathouse was demolished after being deemed unfit for purpose by the council, and replaced in 2019 with a new premises which comprise a boat bay that holds over 40 boats, gym, changing rooms and club room with a bar and balcony.
Trinity College Chapel
Built during the reigns of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I, Trinity College Chapel is used by members of Trinity College and visitors as a place of prayer. The building is also used for formal ceremonies and events within College and serves as a fine venue for musical performance. Whitworth were asked to advise on works to the floor of the chapel.
