Hopkins reveals images of Brighton College scheme

  • Comment

Hopkins Architects has revealed designs for a new building at Brighton College, becoming the latest in a team of high profile architects to work at the private school

The 2,350m² scheme will sit next to the 2012 RIBA Award-winning Skidelsky Building by Kirkland Fraser Moor, and the school’s historic George Gilbert Scott-designed Great Hall.

The four-storey scheme will provide 20 classrooms for history, maths, economics and politics teaching, alongside a large ‘state-of-the-art’ media classroom with adjoining control room.

Hopkins’ building is the latest in the school’s £100million investment programme, which will see a new building completed each year for the next nine years.

The latest building to complete, a boarding house by Allies and Morrison, won a RIBA Award earlier this year.

A new Music School by Eric Parry Architects, which will sit next Tim Ronalds’ Performing Arts Centre, is set to open in 2015.

The Hopkins-designed teaching block is due to complete in summer 2016.
