Design Centre, Merchant Taylors’ School
Completion Date September 2015
Contract Value £5m
Client Merchant Taylors’ School
Merchant Taylors’ School appointed ArchitecturePLB to design their new Design Centre following a successful invited RIBA design competition. The building, which provides state of the art facilities for the school’s celebrated design department was sensitively designed to respect the adjacent Listed school buildings and the Metropolitan Green Belt landscape. The new building was conceived as part of ArchitecturePLB’s wider 15-20 year masterplanning exercise for the entire campus, designed to provide new 21st century learning environments whilst respecting the historic context.
This project was shortlisted for a number of awards including the Brick Awards 2016 and Central LABC Building Excellence Awards 2016.
