New Oxford Station Design Winners Revealed!
Posted on: 18/03/2016

Wilkinson Eyre, Allies & Morrison and AHR have won the competition to develop a concept design for the Oxford station redevelopment.

The competition was managed by the Royal Institute of British Architects, and was judged by representatives from Network Rail, Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council, the Department for Transport and Great Western Railway, with architect Joanna Van Heyningen as an advisor.

AHR’s design features a rooftop restaurant, winning the ‘People’s Favourite’ Award for best design by over 70% of the public in December 2015. Three other architects, John McAslan, AHMM and Rick Mather, also entered the competition which was launched in December.

Bob Price, leader of the Oxford City Council, said:

“Oxford deserves a new rail station and the station area is a key element in our regeneration of the West End, alongside Oxpens and the Island site where the Council is working with Nuffield College to create an overall masterplan. The selected designs for the new station are exciting and reflect a genuine 21st century style of architecture.”

All three ideas will now be used to seek funding for the development.
