Regent High School
The design supports a variety of teaching and learning methods to suit the 1,300 students and the school’s education vision, with a flexible layout that encourages interactive, personal and collaborative working. At the heart of the school is the Arcade, a generous and bright triple-height circulation space that links the new elements of the campus with the original Victorian school building.
The King’s School Shenzhen International
In 2017 Walters & Cohen Architects were commissioned by The King’s School, Canterbury, to design The King’s School Shenzhen International. The school offers pupils aged 2 to 18 a combined Chinese and British curriculum, with a greater emphasis on the latter as pupils progress through the school.
HU University of Applied Sciences
📍 THE NETHERLANDS
The 22,310-square-metre Heidelberglaan 15 building is home to eight educational institutes in the economics, management, information communication and technology, and media and communication sectors.
In 2014 Walters & Cohen won an invited competition to design new accommodation for Newnham College, one of the 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge. The original brief was to design a new 75-bedroom student residence on the tennis courts.
St Paul’s School
The building is arranged in an L-shape in order to connect to buildings on either side on all levels, and enclose the central green courtyard known as Founder’s Court. Elegant vertical piers set out an irregular rhythm and form an integral part of the building’s energy efficiency, providing natural ventilation, solar shading and noise attenuation.
Lairdsland Primary School
The new building is for 280 pupils aged 4-11 on a brownfield site adjacent to the Forth and Clyde Canal. The location of the building on the site was explored in consultation with the school community. This resulted in placing the building parallel to the water to make the most of the unique site.
Design and Technology is housed in a new single-storey building, giving the school a new student entrance and a stronger presence on Cotham Road. A covered external circulation ‘spine’ connects the new build with the existing, unifying piecemeal buildings and creating a strong façade.
City of Westminster College
Located in the heart of Central London, the flagship campus for City of Westminster College is designed to support new ways of teaching and learning. The building is designed to embrace interaction and diversity, and allows students to learn from each other, both formally and informally.
