Eton College

Windsor, Berkshire, UK


Following the historic development of the six hundred year old Eton College, the masterplan for Bekynton Field on the south side of the college is laid out as a new academic quadrangle. To the east and north, an L-shaped red brick building with stone dressings houses the Department of Modern Languages. Replacing a line of twentieth century buildings, the west side is formed by a new yellow stock brick building for the Department of Economics and Politics and the Department of Divinity, which sit either side of double height arch giving views into the new quadrangle from the street. The quadrangle is completed by the theatre, a stone building with a copper roof and augmented with stone sphinxes and a fountain. Inside there is a polychromatic debating chamber based on the Council Chamber at Priene and an exhibition space to display the college's impressive collections of ancient artefacts and other works of art.

The new Lyttleton & Elliott School room buildings which replace a line of twentieth century buildings on South Meadow Lane. Five different bricks were used on the masterplan so that it reads as a collection of buildings around a new quadrangle, and not to simply read as a one mass block. The buildings feature a self-supporting fill brick flemish bond masonry constructed with an independant internal frame. This provides deep window reveals which help with shading from the sunlight.

The quadrangle is completed by the theatre, a rusticated brick building with a copper roof and augmented with stone sphinxes and a fountain.

The new development is within a floodplain and so had to be raised off the ground in accordance with the 1 in 100 years flood levels and this required detailed consultation with the Environmental Agency. A flood void underneath the buildings allows flood water to circulate below the raised ground floor level and into the below ground water infiltration cells under the grassed courtyard.
