Squire lands planning for £3m sixth form centre in west London

Squire and Partners has won planning for a new £3 million sixth form centre at St James Senior Girls’ School in west London

Replacing a disused youth centre in a conservation area overlooking Marcus Garvey Park, Squire and Partners’ design features a series of steeply pitched roofs inspired by nearby mansion blocks.

Constructed from red brick, white stone and glazed rooflights, the building will include six classrooms, an assembly hall, a common room, cycle parking spaces and administrative offices.

The competition-winning design will accommodate 100 students and is expected to complete by September next year.

Last year the AJ100 practice beat Wimbledon-based Ibbett Associates and schools specialist IID Architects to win the prestigious 820m² scheme – its first major education job.

Olympic Cauldron designer Heatherwick Studio was also invited to compete for the 100-pupil project, but declined.
