The Garden Building at Lincoln College is a fine Edwardian structure, designed by
the Architects Read & MacDonald, which forms the east side of the Fellows' Garden
and the south side of the smaller Rector's Garden.
It was designed in the style of the later 17th century and the exterior is adorned with
various garlands, carved motifs and classical details. The warm, honey-coloured
stone has mellowed and the building complements its collegiate setting and the
immaculate lawn to its front. The interior is also carefully designed with joinery
details such as panelling, architraves, dados and skirtings as well as stone details and
domed rooflights.
The building is currently being enlarged and refurbished in a development which will
also see the replacement of a single storey range which originally formed a lecture
room in the Edwardian Garden Building.
A programme of building recording has been undertaken prior to the start of the
development and during the initial soft-strip works. This has produced an archive
record of the building and it has also enhanced understanding of the primary
structures, particularly of the previously hidden features such as the roof trusses and
primary ventilation ducts.
