River Spire View (formerly Luther Court)

A2 Dominion Housing Association

Affordable housing development with student accommodation (Yurky Cross, 2015).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAReplacing an older block on the site, this complex provides 42 one- and two-bedroom ‘affordable homes’ together with 82 rooms for foreign students studying at Bellerby’s College. A2 Dominion is a large social and affordable housing provider. Perhaps inevitably, the boldly coloured ‘statement’ elevation to Thames Street raised some eyebrows, but it has brought a contemporary urban aesthetic into a busy Oxford street.
