Associated Architects have won the competition to design a multipurpose hall for The Kingâ€™s School Hawford in Worcestershire. Hawford Hall is to be used for sports, drama, assemblies and events. The design takes inspiration from the many timber barns that feature prominently in Worcestershireâ€™s architectural history. Associated Architects are in the process of being briefed and will begin detail design work shortly.
John Christophers, Associate, said, _â€˜We greatly value our 15-year relationship with the Kingâ€™s Worcester schools and weâ€™re delighted to have won this competition for Kingâ€™s Hawford School, where we have not previously worked. Our architectural concept for a contemporary timber â€œbarnâ€ seems appropriate in this lovely rural location as the main school building is a Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse.â€™_
