John McAslan + Partners has won the green light for a new sports pavilion and sixth form block at St Paul’s Girls’ School in Hammersmith
The practice was appointed to draw up a masterplan for the private school site back in December 2010 and its scheme includes two new buildings alongside a mix of interventions within the site’s existing buildings.
The school is mainly housed in a 1904 Grade II-listed building designed in the Arts and Crafts style by architect Gerard Horsley but over the last 100 years various additions have been made to the site.
John McAslan + Partners’ new building will house the school’s sixth form alongside its history and geography departments.
It will also reconfigure and refurbish a link space to house staff areas, meeting rooms and offices, while a new 900m² sports pavilion will also be built.
Construction on the sports pavilion is set to being in April, while work is expected to start on the new sixth form building in the summer.
