Shiplake College is an Independent boarding/day school located on a 45 acre beautifully landscaped site, near Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.
The school’s determination to deliver quality education has led them to plan and build new facilities, expanding the quality educational environment to be both environmentally friendly, and cost effective.
CBG Consultants were engaged to work alongside Nicolas Brown Webber Architects on the design of a new café and Sixth Form Centre in the heart of the College, the site was originally used infrequently as an overflow car park.
The building has been designed to be timeless whilst nestling perfectly into the surroundings. The ground floor houses a small sixth form café and servery which opens out on to a sunny deck. Upstairs are two classrooms and two small seminar rooms accessed via an external stair under an oak-framed roof.
