Plans approved for Creative Arts Centre
26 January 2022
We’re delighted that our scheme for the development and extension of the existing Art & Design Technology buildings at Charterhouse School has received planning consent from Waverley Borough Council. The project forms part of a campus masterplan which has been developed to support the school’s growth and transition to co-education.
The scheme comprises of an extension providing state-of-the-art studio space alongside a retrofit of the the existing Art and Design Technology buildings. A new glazed link connects all three buildings which will share a new main entrance, dedicated gallery areas and external courtyard.
The new Creative Arts Centre will help to realise the school’s ambition to create a high quality, innovative, cross-departmental and future-focused campus. The extension is designed to be net zero carbon in use through the use of passive design and extensive renewable technologies. Alongside this, an extensive upgrade of the adjacent building envelope and an internal reconfiguration look to futureproof the acclaimed studio building, designed by James Dartford in 1957.
Stage 5 construction is scheduled to start in July 2022, with the phased project due for completion in October 2023.
