University Church – Oxford
Standing in the heart of Oxford, this is the spiritual home of the oldest university in Britain. It has been a site of Christian worship and the focus of lively debates for over 700 years. With such a rich history it was time to create a more contemporary presence both on and off-line. More+
With more than 300,000 tourists visiting throughout the year, the church was lucky enough to receive funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the works, specifically not to promote religion, but to raise awareness of the historical nature of the site and its tourist attraction potential. That’s not forgetting the founding of Oxfam in its library and variety of concerts, lectures and events held there.
At every level the materials have provided an integrated and layered experience which enable people to explore further. Be that for quiet contemplation, going up the tower, attending a service or listening to a concert in the evening.
