Architect: e+ architecture
This project involved the design, documentation and administration of two stages of new Campuses for Girton Grammar School. The solutions have provided the School with Technical Spaces and associated facilities, while still achieving a sense of abundance, openness and light on four standard residential sites totalling 1,733m2.
e+ architecture’s design for the new Performing Arts Facility is part of the realisation of Girton Grammar School’s Senior Campus.This is the first stage of a project which incorporates facilities for senior staff, and the Performing Arts Facility, together with general teaching facilities. The building is innovative in its design, and provides flexible teaching spaces; while the obvious feature of the building is the ‘black box’ of two-storey volume capable of accommodating 150 people, providing great opportunities for drama and music performances. The building is linked back to the rest of the campus with a bridge at first-floor level, therefore integrating and unifying the circulation throughout the school.
Venturing past the black box, the school opens up to the Music Building, featuring acoustically treated music tuition rooms, theory classrooms, and a dedicated percussion and rehearsal room.
