contributed by davidb

Following the success of their phase 1 extension, Hodder and Partners returned a few years later for phase 2, adding a further 132 en-suite study bedrooms, a new porter's lodge, together with four seminar rooms. The accommodation is arranged in two wings forming an "L" shape, located north of Jacobsen's buildings, opposite the architect's phase 1 extension. This creates a court that is primarily given to car parking although a strip of lawn in front of the eastern wing continues the line of of a similar feature created by Jacobsen. Each wing is comprised of a series of three storey pavilions, linked by stairs. In phase 2, the architects have again created a scheme that echoes Jacobsen's original without copying their own, earlier work, or that of the master. However, here the stairs are less elaborate. Consequently this second phase, whilst displaying the appropriate level of gravitas, seems to lack something of the character of their phase 1.
