The appearance of the designs were founded on a palette of materials and forms that echoed, yet contrasted, with the architecture of the original 1970’s school. The new entrance building; a new double height foyer, conceived as a folded, metal clad plane, cedar lined internally, provides a ‘gateway’ into the school.
Part of the Priority Schools Programme, and delivered with IESE Framework partner Osborne Construction, we developed initial designs produced by Hampshire County Council to create detailed contractor proposals. Our involvement was for stage 4 onwards including technical delivery and site monitoring. The project involved alterations and extensions to the school to provide six new classrooms and other teaching accommodation.
