Rick Mather Architects have submitted planning for a New Boys Boarding House and associated landscaping adjacent to Chapel Court within the historic grounds of Stowe School.
The new house will be the latest phase of a development strategy for new boarding provision at the school - part developed by Rick Mather Architects - following a comprehensive review of the existing housing in order to consolidate and improve its facilities, whilst relieving pressure on the Main House and returning it to its original features.
The new high quality purpose built, three storey boarding house will provide study bedrooms for 60 pupils alongside staff accommodation, living facilities, common rooms, terrace and garden area. The associated landscaping will respond to the historic campus, defining the chapel courtyard, reinstating vistas, and strengthening the tree belt to conceal the development from the historic gardens.
This will be the third boarding house designed by Rick Mather Architects at Stowe School, with a fourth currently also being designed. More details about the proposals can be found here.
