Hopkins Architects to revamp Edwin Lutyens' Hampstead school

  • Comment
Hopkins Architects has finally succeeded where 17 others have failed by winning planning permission for the redevelopment of Edwin Lutyens’ Grade II*-listed Henrietta Barnett School in north-west London.

Over the last 40 years, a raft of proposals to overhaul and extend the historic 1911 school at the heart of the Hampstead Garden Suburb conservation area have come to nothing.

However, after ‘extensive consultation’ with English Heritage, Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust, the Victorian Society, the Twentieth Century Society and the Lutyens Trust, the local authority approved the revamp of the two listing buildings and 1,100m2 of additional space.

The school’s headmaster Oliver Blond said: ‘This is an important and long-awaited day in the Henrietta Barnett School’s history.

‘Hopkins Architects has shown great respect for the existing listed buildings and yet managed to generate a superb contemporary solution for our school.’

The project is being funded by a Department for Children, Schools and Families grant.
