Oxford Preservation Trust Award for Trinity’s Levine Building

4 November 2022

The Levine Building at Trinity has won an award for its contribution to the architectural character of Oxford.

The Oxford Preservation Trust Awards were held on 1 November, and the Levine Building received a Certificate Winner recognition in the New Building category. The award recognises the building’s positive contribution to Oxford’s built and natural environment in its design, contribution to its historic environment, and ability to engage the local community.

The Levine Building is a substantial new development set in the heart of Trinity's historic site and marks the first major upgrade of the College’s academic facilities in more than 50 years. Its design supports the College’s ambition to improve diversity of applicants from a wider range of backgrounds, and to be a benchmark for overall accessibility.  It is designed to sit comfortably within the College’s rich built and landscape heritage, on a site within a listed garden with significant historic trees nearby as well as archaeological interest.

The Oxford Preservation Trust is dedicated to conserving the best of Oxford’s past and help create a positive future for the city through education, community outreach programmes and building restoration. Their Awards seek to recognise the contribution that building projects, large and small, can make to Oxford’s character and communities.
