Henrietta Barnett School London
The original school was designed Lutyens and is listed Grade II*. Any change of any kind was going to be controversial and 17 redevelopment schemes have previously been rejected. Following intensive consultation the practice drew up a masterplan for the whole campus stipulating much smaller buildings with external circulation along colonnades at two levels.
Each new L-shaoed wing extends directly from the cross-axis of the Lutyens buildings. The buildings are constructed with lime mortar brickwork and clay tiled roofs. Outwardly the building is evidently designed to last, it is robust and in that sense very sustainable. The interiors are equally materially strong and well daylit.
Hopkins Architects’ school buildings are a timely reminder of the value of carefully designed educational environments.

Hopkins Architects get planning for South Hampstead High School campus and complete two arts buildings for Henrietta Barnett School
Designed by Hopkins Architects, two new buildings for the Henrietta Barnett School have been completed in the heart of the Hampstead Garden Suburb. The buildings are the first new public buildings on the site for over sixty years, and sit adjacent to the Grade II* Listed existing School Building, designed by Edwin Lutyens.
The new buildings house the Art, DT, Drama and Music departments, although were designed with the flexibility to be general teaching classrooms, should the need arise in the future. The form and materials were carefully designed to complement the existing school building, two churches and residential buildings that all face onto the Central Square and were all designed by Lutyens. The red brickwork walls were constructed in Flemish bond using lime-based mortar, with exposed precast slabs at first floor level and a timber-framed roof with tiles to match those used typically in the suburb.
