new schools | Eton college
visitor entrance & offices
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.
