The new 135 bed student accommodation in Oxford for the historic Dorothy Wadham College was completed in 2019 in the Traditional Brick & Stone Mystique facing brick.

Mystique, with its rustic tones of buff and mellow yellows, provides modern housing for the student population, while keeping the aesthetics of the local buildings constructed in stunning Cotswold limestone.

The Dorothy Wadham College was constructed in 1610, designed by William Arnold is said to be the last public building in the county to be created in the tradition of the Master Mason, so it was vital that the choice of facing brick did not interfere with the stunning architecture of the college.
