Design award for Univ boathouse

University College's new boathouse, which was unveiled to the public at Summer Eights last year, has been awarded a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) award.   The boathouse, which was designed by Shahriar Nasser for Belsize Architects, was rebuilt at a cost of £2.7m following an arson attack in 1999 that left the old building unusable. The money was raised through a combination of insurance pay-outs and donations from Univ alumni.   The building is modern in appearance, featuring panoramic views of the river and a thin copper roof, and includes facilities for boat storage and repair as well as a gym and accomodation. It is used by students from University, Wolfson, St Peter's and Somerville colleges.
