NVB’s design for a new academic hub for Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School has been submitted for planning approval. The 6,000 square metre scheme provides classroom accommodation, drama facilities and assembly spaces.
NVB was originally appointed to the project following an invited design competition in 2016. The development of the proposals involved extensive consultation with Historic England to address the potential impact on the neighbouring listed Aldenham House and historic gardens. The proposed buildings surround a new landscaped social courtyard for the pupils and staff to use and creates a new hub on largely brownfield land to complement the school Quad.

We are very pleased to be handing over the first phase of works at Royal Wootton Bassett Infants’ School to Wiltshire Council.
Located in the town centre conservation area, the project provides 4 new classrooms, group space, and a tree-house library. Arranged on a steeply sloping site the building is accessed via a bridge and play-deck which is intended to create the feeling of a tree-house. Works can now proceed to demolish existing buildings and complete the external works which include an exciting amphitheatre and slide.
Photographs supplied by the main contractor – Bray and Slaughter.

This project provides commercial and academic facilities to generate caseload and support the new graduate entry programme for veterinary students and post graduate studies in veterinary science.
The new facility will complement recently completed projects by NVB Architects for a small animal surgery and equine surgery facilities also on the Langford site.

We were very proud to attend the opening of the Michael Malnick Centre at Leighton Park School in Reading by Karen Gibson, conductor of the Kingdom Choir. The project is located adjacent to Grade II listed buildings at the centre of the school and includes music classrooms, live-lounge, media suite, 6th form study, group rooms, and a large new foyer to serve the existing theatre. It is wonderful to see the school using the new facilities and to hear the creativity of the pupils.
