Classroom extension at an Independent School located within Bath's Conservation Area

The scheme contains eight classrooms and three departmental resource areas, divided into two blocks by a triangular-shaped flexible circulation area that can be used for exhibiting work and academic conferences.

The design is intended to be contemporary interpretation of both the original school and the heritage buildings of Bath. The form and proportion of the roof structure and openings are a response to the rhythm of the adjacent Ferens buildings's facade, with tall windows and perforated panels.

The exterior incorporates stone on the south facade with the dark brick on the other facades, creating an unique architectural composition.
