Jerwood in March 2019


Jerwood Foundation

The Jerwood Library at Trinity Hall College Cambridge has been voted the 'Best New/Refurbished Building in Central Cambridge' in a vote organised by Cambridge City Council to celebrate fifty years of the City Centre Conservation Area. Chosen from a shortlist of six, the library's nomination praised the way the library 'harmonises with and enhances its immediate and wider setting within the Conservation Area, by day and by night'. 

Jerwood Foundation made a capital grant of £1.4million towards the 'bricks and mortar' of the new library designed by Tristan Rees Roberts for Freeland Rees-Roberts architects. As well as celebrating its status as a cherished building in 'The Backs' of Cambridge Jerwood Library is also enjoying its 20th anniversary this year having opened officially in May 1999.
