London-based practice Hopkins Architects completed this new-build structure for Brighton College in Kemptown, Sussex, having won the limited competition. The design responds to and complements its context of historic Grade 2 listed structures, replacing a number of outdated buildings previously residing in its location, with stone and brick facades and timber louvres over the fully glazed gable ends. The roof is of zinc and features beautiful undulations, and overall the structure provides 22 new classrooms and generous social circulation spaces.
