A girls’ secondary school in south London has won the Riba Stirling Prize, the UK’s leading architecture award.
Burntwood School in Wandsworth was rebuilt between 2011 and 2014 at a cost of £40.9m, to a design by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. It contains over 3,000 Whitecroft products, with our ‘Foil’ offering used throughout most teaching spaces.
Whitecroft worked with Mott MacDonald on the scheme which was one of the last schools built under the government’s Building Schools for the Future initiative which ended in 2010. The project consists of six new buildings inclusive of a science building for a specialist science school, as well as the refurbishment of the existing swimming pool and theatre/auditorium blocks.
Award adjudicators referred to the school as the “most accomplished of the six shortlisted buildings” and showed “the full range of the skills that architects can offer to society”.
