Back to school with rpa:group

Our Architecture team worked in partnership with City Axis, on the delivery of King College Maths School, converted from two buildings, one of them being the historic Lambeth Baths.

Both buildings needed a complete interior refurbishment to fulfill the vision of a connected, spacious environment featuring well-appointed classrooms, designed to encourage communication and creativity. From initial concept to official opening by the Secretary of State for Education, the project took just 81 working days.

The new school was created to offer children with an aptitude for mathematics the benefit of a dedicated approach to core maths subjects, and to enable them to reach their full potential by applying to top universities.

The Design and Project Management team has also been working hard on the total refurbishment of the canteen at London’s famous French Lycée School. Here, our contemporary design solution used a bright colour palette, incorporating vibrant lime green tiled walls and large format informative graphic wall treatments, displaying quirky food vocabulary in both French and English. The lighting is of an industrial style featuring metal pendant lights. Finally, a natural counterpoint has been provided by fitting timber slatted ceilings, which contrast nicely with the large areas of tile and stainless steel.

The Project Management Team ensured all of this was faithfully replicated in the physical environment, overseeing the cost management and delivery of the project within very demanding time frames.

Our last project was to help move an entire girls school from Ealing to Putney! Our Architecture team provided the design and build support for Falcon School for Girls, acquired by the Alpha Plus group, when it moved to it’s new site, with room for 350 pupils, situated in four Edwardian houses in the leafy Woodborough Road Conservation Area.
