Client | Claremont Fan Court
Status | On Site
Fletcher Crane Architects have been engaged by Claremont Fan Court School to design and deliver a new Science & Technology building; the first building in a long term phased masterplan.
Claremont Fan Court School is private school located in Esher, Surrey placed within an historic Grade I listed site and landscape. Sir John Vanbrugh, Capability Brown and William Kent have all contributed to the architectural history on the site.
The new Science and Technology building provides ten new subject specific classrooms set over two levels. The two key facing facades are wrapped by a double height colonnade defining the two key entrances and developing a distinct architectural language. Internally polished concrete floors, hardwood timber finishes and carefully designed fixtures and furniture combine into an overarching aesthetic. A mature material palette has been conceived externally combining a dark brick with bronzed anodised aluminium window framing.
In addition, FCA have also designed a technology workshop extension which will double the amount of teaching space associated to the historic existing design technology workshop.
