The Oracle, Reading
Name of Project：The Oracle, Reading
Type of Service：Architectural Design, Interior Design Urban Design and Master Planning, Consultancy
The Oracle development was designed to fit within the existing urban fabric of Reading and to make a significant contribution to the town.
The vision, developed by Haskoll, was to create a public space defined by the River Kennet and the new buildings and to establish a sense of place which would be of lasting value for the people of Reading. With this vision, a lively urban hub has evolved from what was previously a run down and inaccessible area of the town.
Haskoll were the architects from concept to completion for this 66,000m² retail development. This creation of a strong shoppers’ environment has acted as a focal point for a broad range of restaurant and leisure uses. This now established centre has set a high standard and continues to win awards.
