The University of Oxford has been actively developing over the past 20 years, and Said Business School (Phase I) probably marked the beginning of this activity. Before Said, Oxford lacked a world class business school, and the development of Said Business School was meant to address this. Dixon Jones's sensitive modern take on a traditional Oxford college created a brief demanding high quality excellent design that would attract the best students and staff to Said; Aram's task was to help Dixon Jones and the end client achieve this. Aram provided all the furniture for the students and back offices and the end result was a modern dynamic interior which attracted top executives to Said for their MBA.
Said Business School has been very successful, and had to expand with a second phase to accommodate demand. Aram also provided the help with specification and logistics to make the Phase II result even more impressive than Phase I.
