Background:

Emanuel School was founded in 1594 and occupies a 12 acre site near to Clapham Junction railway station. Over the last 10 years or so, MNP have worked on four successive buildings including a new library, ICT suite, theatre and restoration of the main entrance.


Alongside Horsley Huber Architects, the MNP team produced structural and civil engineering designs for the Dacre Building, a new £6m arts and humanities block, opposite the recently constructed Fiennes Theatre. This three storey building will maximise use of space between the existing school and the railway, by interlocking with several existing structures.


A high quality exposed concrete frame for the Dacre Building is currently under construction by Buxton Building Contractors. The building will include teaching rooms, soundproof music practice rooms, a dedicated kiln room and a dark room. A glazed walkway will highlight the connection to theatre.

Status:
Under construction.
