The Alpha Plus Group appointed rpa:group and CityAxis Ltd to deliver a design and build solution for Abingdon House, a new specialist school within a five storey Edwardian building in Marylebone, close to Regents Park.
The project entailed creating the full requirements of an independent school, with a number of extra support facilities. New classrooms, laboratories and art rooms were created along with a gym and refectory. The design approach required sensitivity, as the building is located in a conservation area. Therefore, particular care was needed to ensure that the facade wasn’t altered, as the programme did not allow for any planning considerations.
The project was completed on time, enabling the school to be launched in the new academic year.
