Shiplake College completed their latest and largest building project to date with the construction of this Arts Music and Resource Centre. Planning restrictions on height meant that the three storey building had be partially sunk into the ground. The semi basement houses a state of the art music department with the library and learning support departments on the middle floor.
Art and Ceramics occupy the top floor below large vaulted ceilings with exposed douglas fir trusses and top light. The building achieved a BREEAM ‘excellent’ target. The building nestles into the landscape and patterned brickwork picks up detailing from the adjacent listed building.
The building achieved a Commended Award from the Chilterns Society.
