Oxford University Museum
of Natural History


This is an extremely important building architecturally and in terms of the works it houses.

dpa were commissioned to review the current day lighting arrangements with a view to possible re-roofing. The study examined all aspects of the natural light within the main space including sun penetration as well as generally day lighting arrangements. Consideration was given to conservation of the artefacts as well as visual appearance of any proposed re-roofing arrangements.

The practice is very proud of its relationship with the city of Oxford, University of Oxford, the various colleges within Oxford and other commercial organisations and this project and study is to us a privilege to be able to work on such important buildings.
