New school revealed for Cumbria

  • Comment
Manchester-based practice A-Cube Architects has released this image of a new building for Kendal College in Cumbria - part of a £7 million overhaul of the existing campus.

The 1,800m 2, three-storey block will house the college's refectory, reception, multi-function hall and specialist teaching areas for hair and beauty salons.

The £3 million project, which is set to go on site next summer, is a key phase in the proposed 'centralisation' of the college's accommodation into one main campus on the edge of the Lake District.

Explaining the project, practice director Faheem Aftab said: 'The building will be of a steel frame construction, the sloped glazing will be a standard curtain walling system tipped to the maximum [angle] allowed without having to alter the standard specification.'

He added: 'The roof and curved walls and floors are proposed to be made from a standard composite board curtain walling system.'

The scheme is expected to be submitted for planning in January.
