This project is a new science and maths building for Charterhouse, in Godalming, Surrey. Proposals included the refurbishment of the existing science block, museum block and a new build extension. Works are to be built in phases to provide the maximum number of useable classrooms / labs and eliminating the need for temporary accommodation. The new extension is a two storey building, with an exposed concrete construction to ground and first floor and an exposed CLT roof structure over of a complex geometry. Tall chimneys extend to one side of the building providing extract for the chemistry lab and making reference to other historic buildings on the site.
