A big thank you to our wonderful client and project team for making it such a success:

  • Client: St. Paul's Cathedral School
  • Architect: Kilburn Nightingale Architects
  • Structural engineer: Price and Myers
  • Main contractor: Borras Construction
  • Services engineer: CBG Consultants
  • Stonework: Szerelmey
  • Joinery: Furniture Manufacturing Group
  • Steelwork, including new steel staircase: Alpine Group

The project comprises a reorganisation of a central London school to provide a new-build boarding house for the choristers which links an existing 1960s Grade II* school building on one side, and a Grade I listed church tower to the other, as well as renovation of parts of the existing buildings to provide staff flats, 3 new classrooms, a refurbished and extended dining hall, and an IT room. The existing playground has also been reconfigured and extended with a new play structure under the new boarding house and additional play area on the roof of the dining hall extension.

A review of the project by Jay Merrick with photographs by Nick Kane was featured earlier in the year in the Architects' Journal, available here.
