Abingdon School is an independent day and boarding school for boys aged 11-18. MEB Design were appointed by the school to create a new ‘home’ for the humanities departments in the former science building located in the centre of the main school site.
The brief was to reconfigure the circulation and create departmental identities for geography, history and classics by forming breakout spaces and defined department entrances. Exposed services with acoustic rafts were chosen for the ceilings to increase the feeling of space in the classrooms. The project also included new day house recreational spaces with study and sixth form rooms.
