Pupil Houses

We were appointed to design a scheme whereby the school site was converted to hold more accommodation and communal living areas for both pupils and staff, and the vehicular access routes and parking facilities refined. The design had to consider the existing school buildings in terms of size and form in order to create a development that was integrated into the school maintaining its strong sense of community and inclusiveness. Fundamental to this design was the planned layouts of pupil and staff quarters, which would have to serve the occupant all year round, including the school holidays. Striking a balance between private and public areas was key to the accommodation blocks.
