Ash Court, Girton College
Max Kettenacker, Allies and Morrison, architect for the project describes the strategies and details employed to meeting its high thermal performance standards as well as providing resilience to climate change impacts and the challenges of student occupation, achieving excellent airtightness, longevity and passive cooling using concrete frame and masonry construction. The building has been decorated with numerous awards, including a Green Apple Gold Award, LABC Best Education Building and RIBA East Special Award for Sustainability.
Ash Court is a new student accommodation wing at Girton College in Cambridge designed to Passivhaus standard with a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and a 100-year design life.
