Wadham College Engineered Wood stairs with linen finish

We supplied our prime-grade engineered oak planks to be used as stair cladding within the Back Quad building at Wadham College in Oxford, as part of a wider project to improve facilities and widen access.

The customer chose our Linen finish for their stairs, contrasted against the red balustrades to create a bright, contemporary space for its students.

The Back Quad building itself was a winner of the 2024 RIBA South Award, along with several other college buildings including the William Doo Undergraduate Centre and Dr Lee Shau Kee Building, which were all built as part of the same project.
