visitor entrance & offices


Project Description

The completed scheme at New Schools is a densely woven mix of old and new that creates a remarkably rich architectural experience out of its historic context, demanding brief and tight site constraints. The proposal was to rehouse the senior management team in the heart of the College, and create a new visitor entrance.  Insensitive previous additions have been removed to reveal and restore the existing listed building, with sympathetic new brickwork and crafted stone elements inserted next to, into, under and above the original fabric.

The project as a whole reinforces a sense of place, the new addition reframing and revealing views down and through, up and out, and back into the historic group of buildings.
