Client: St. Paul’s Girls’ School
Location: Hammersmith, London
OOBE was commissioned by St. Paul’s Girls’ School to develop Phase two and three masterplan proposals for the Jestico + Whiles redevelopment of the school from planning to implementation.
St. Paul’s Girls’ School has a rich history and heritage; Gustav Holst was the Director of Music at the school until his death in 1934 and the school is set within the Brook Green Conservation Area and its main building is Grade II listed.
Landscape masterplan sensitive to the heritage of this leading independent school
The landscape proposals serve to modernise the school’s primary circulation spaces at the front entrance, courtyard and car parking area to be functional and accessible, whilst being sensitive and deferential to the grandeur of the main building.
The design intent for the external proposals to St. Paul’s Girls’ School, is to provide a high quality, accessible and inclusive environment in which all visitors to the school can enjoy and appreciate the historic building’s primary entrance, as it was originally intended.
The proposed intervention complements the character of the Grade II listed building and wider Brook Green conversation area, providing a formal approach to the school.
