MJP brings cascading terraces to Harrow College

MJP Architects has unveiled designs for One Harrow, a new building at Harrow College in northwest London. The scheme links the parkland of Harrow Hill to the shopping streets of the town centre, with a series of cascading planted terraces in between the “fingers” of the building. The 32,500sq m building replaces two existing campuses, increasing space by around 40%.
The landscape design, produced with Churchman Landscape Architects will retain all the major trees along the front of the site, screening the base of the structure.
‘We have tried to create an elegant building that will help the college and give students a positive experience of studying: said Liz Pride, director of education at MJP Architects.
The building will vary in height between three and nine storeys with several parts such as the refectory and the learning resources centre open to the public. An internal street will link the two new public squares on either site of the college, one serving the station, and one leading to a new footbridge and into the surrounding parkland.

Harrow College in London
This is the largest college in the London Borough of Harrow. It opened in 1999 following a merger of two former local colleges, Greenhill College (located in the centre of Harrow Town) and Weald College (10 minutes away in neighbouring town Wealdstone).
Ofsted has reported the college as Outstanding for Social and Educational Inclusion. More than 3,000 full-time and 7,000 part-time learners come to Harrow College for sixth form and adult courses. It is also an associate college of Westminster University and Middlesex University.
Teaching takes place at the Harrow-on-the-Hill campus on Lowlands Road and at the Harrow Weald campus in Brookshill, Harrow Weald. The College also teaches in community locations around the London Borough of Harrow.
