Brentwood School Sixth Form Centre & Assembly Hall
Scheme name: Brentwood School Sixth Form Centre & Assembly Hall
Practice: Cottrell & Vermeulen Architecture Ltd
Client: Brentwood School
Photographer: Paul Riddle
Three buildings celebrate the spirit of education, unfolding as a sequence of spaces for learning, socialising, and gathering: a new sixth form block, a remodelled Victorian vicarage and a new assembly block. Drawing inspiration from the existing Victorian vicarage, the new design is expressed in a language that is both contextual and contemporary. The sculpting of the roofs creates non-standard, domestic-scaled classrooms filled with natural light, reminiscent of the gabled roofs of the Victorian vicarage, but with an added measure of playfulness.
