McAslan lands Dulwich College masterplanning role

John McAslan + Partners (JMP) has won a £20 million project to masterplan the redevelopment of Dulwich College in south east London

The practice beat Fielden Clegg Bradley, Bennetts Associates, Grimshaw, Arup and Marks Barfield to win the 30-hectare job.

Aidan Potter, JMP director of urban design and infrastructure, said: ‘The College’s masterplan draws upon JMP’s experience of designing modern educational environments and the practice’s expertise in restoring buildings of particular architectural merit, creating a forward-looking design that remains sensitive to the College’s long history.’

Joe Spence, Dulwich College master added: ‘Dulwich College is a bold boys’ school and it is McAslan’s innate understanding of this which will help us to find the right solutions for what will remain a ruggedly handsome site.’

Planned to transform the site in time for the schools’ 400th anniversary in 2019, the masterplan aims to create a ‘clear and flexible pattern of movement and improved navigation for students and staff.’

The Grade II-listed ‘Palladian’ campus (pictured) was designed by architect Charles Barry in the late 19th century and is currently host to 1400 students.

The project aims to refurbish the listed building and re-landscape the school’s rear car parks and the Barry building’s main Western entrance.
