Bond Bryan have evolved and developed the concept design by Architecture PLB and are working – in collaboration with Mid Group – to deliver this brand new, 13,000 sqm secondary school in Hertfordshire.
At the heart of a new residential development by Chase Homes in Broxbourne, The Broxbourne School has been designed as a contextual response to its green belt setting and the School’s ambitions and aspirations for its future. The three-storey building, and its external spaces, have been designed to integrate seamlessly with the scale and public realm of the wider development. The School will be home to The Broxbourne Sports Centre and The Broxbourne Music Centre – both of which will serve as very valuable assets for the local community.
Externally, the building has been designed as a beacon for modern education – welcoming pupils via a distinctive three-storey glazed colonnade. Internally, a large 3-storey atrium will be both the social and thephysical heart of the school. The vibrant and daylit atrium serves to knit the large community elements and the 3 teaching wings together into a cohesive whole. A large learning resource centre and 6th form study centre overlook the entrance to the site.
The existing building is to be fully refurbished with the operational accommodation and appliance bays being retained at ground floor level.
Factory 2050 is the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research.
