Pace Block at Hatfield College

Built in 1950 by the architect E. Vincent Harris, OBE, RA, this block of student accommodation looks much older than it actually is. It was obviously designed with an appreciation of older buildings in mind. The building was named after Canon Pace, who had just retired as joint vice-master of Hatfield and University Colleges, and cost 77,000 pounds to build. This seemed like an exorbitant sum, as the original estimate was only 41,000.
