The Bursary at Keble College occupies the ground floor of Pusey Quad Staircase P2, a grade 1 listed building. Radically remodelled by Ahrends, Burton and Koralek in 1977 the bursary required rearrangement in accordance with current work practices. As much as possible of the original ABK fitted furniture has been reused and new oak and glazed screens installed to create new office spaces. The melding of Butterfield, ABK and a contemporary makeover has been well received by staff.
The rooms were refurbished to a meticulous level of detail and finish, resulting in sophisticated utilitarian chic interiors. The project represents a continuation of the college’s commitment to preserving their buildings and enhancing the level of student accommodation.
