John McAslan + Partners has been commissioned by one of the world’s leading business schools, the Saïd Business School at The University of Oxford, to transform the currently unoccupied Osney Power Station into the School’s new Global Leadership Centre.

The Power Station holds a wealth of opportunities to create a dynamic environment as the centre for the School’s executive education provision. In particular, the riverside setting creates a unique opportunity for adaptive re-use and new build for both academic and residential amenities, creating an enclave which is both part of the urban Oxford scene whilst being suitably distinct and tranquil.

Professor Peter Tufano, Dean of the Saïd Business School, comments:

“John McAslan + Partners’ proposals show great vision: the practice’s interpretation of the brief effectively combines the existing historic fabric and world class contemporary design.”
