Designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, who also designed Battersea Power station and the much loved red telephone box, the Deneke Building bears the recognisable hallmarks of Scott's style. Traditional materials and classical elements are fused with the emphatic simplicity of 1930s modernism. The impressive College Dining Hall is situated within this building, reached by a wide corridor lined with fascinating photographs of College alumni who have have forged distinguished, and often pioneering careers, as public servants, academics, artists, musicians, journalists and social reformers. Two smaller rooms nearby are available as dining or meeting rooms.
The Deneke building has a central location in the College, and is only a few steps away from many of our en suite rooms. The Dining Hall is sited at the centre of the building, and can seat up to 250 guests for dinner. In addition there are two smaller and more intimate rooms, which can be used as meeting or dining rooms for around 25-30 people.
