5/7 Block No. 32
(Roberts)
17.6.1983

GV II

Dormitory block. 1904 by Sir Henry Tanner. Pebbledash with red brick dressings
and plain tiled roof. One of 8 identical H-shaped dormitory blocks arranged
in symmetrical pairs on a radial axis to each side of the central dining hall
and tower, of which blocks 31 and 30 are so altered as to be unlistable.
Single storey and attic in Arts and Crafts Georgian style. Plinth, pilaster
quoins and modillion eaves cornice. Projecting end gables treated as
pediments, with gauged and keyed Diocletian windows, and 2 paired glazing bar
sashes below. Interior courtyard with alternating glazing bar sashes and 3
segmentally headed semi-dormers on each of 3 faces or alternately pedimented
dormers. Balustraded and columned open cupola in centre of main range, and
smaller cupola-type air vents on side wings. Outer faces of wings with
glazing bar sashes and flat roofed dormers. Small one storey C20 extensions
on front courtyard. Rear courtyards with 1 storey original service blocks.
Entry by half-glazed doors with pediments with large glazed end gables of
westernmost wings. The blocks are asymmetrical, the disposition of segmental
semi-dormers and pedimented gables designed to mirror adjacent paired block
(Nos. 42 and 41, Nos. 39 and 40, Nos. 32 and 33), rather than the opposing
wing of the same H-block.
