Brentwood School Sixth Form Centre & Assembly Hall

Three buildings celebrate the spirit of education, unfolding as a sequence of spaces for learning, socializing, and gathering: a new Sixth Form block, a remodelled Victorian vicarage, and a new assembly block which links to a sequence of other smaller external social areas.

Admirable innovations include internal thermal chimneys in every classroom, natural ventilation panels next to windows, and pre-cast concrete panels used as formwork for the cast-in-situ concrete.

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 yet with an added measure of playfulness.
