After completing the ARCO building, Rick Mather Architects were awarded this commission, which sits opposite their earlier work in the Newman Quad. The central feature of this project is the 250 seat, multi-purpose, O'Reilly Theatre. Located on the building's lowest level and enjoying views into the Quad, this space can be extended into the outside via opening windows. Retractable seating further enhances the auditorium's flexibility. Above this, at street level, can be found separate dining and recital halls. The upper floors house a number of seminar rooms and twenty study bedrooms. Inspired by William Butterfield's polychromatic brickwork, the building's envelope is clad with brick. Here, Mather develops and extends the precedent of the vertical stack bonded brickwork from the south facade of the ARCO building. The triangular oriel windows from the ARCO project also reappear here.
