Bishop’s Stortford College Boarding Houses get Planning \

We are thrilled to have secured planning for two new boarding and day houses for Bishop’s Stortford College; providing modern and sustainable accommodation for pupils and staff.

This is the second phase of a wider site regeneration masterplan developed by Hawkins\Brown, which will enhance the College's reputation as a leading educator in the area.

The new buildings sit to the North of the Campus within the Bishop’s Stortford Conservation Area, and has been designed to sit sensitively within the mature trees on the site. Charred timber cladding and red brick facades reconcile the boundary between the wooded site and institutional buildings to the South, with exposed CLT structure and double height spaces that open onto a shared break-out space for pupils.

The scheme follows on from the recently completed Alliott House, which included the refurbishment and extension of an 18th Century house on the College site. Exposed CLT and charred cladding were used successfully to provide a high quality, modern facility that complements and enhances the exiting campus character.
