We are pleased to have submitted a planning application for a new theatre and assembly hall for Horris Hill preparatory school near Newbury in Berkshire.

The performance space will allow the school to develop their tradition of theatrical performance and public speaking. The theatre will also be used as a day-lit assembly space around which the life of the school will revolve.

The design of the new theatre building seeks to activate the built context immediately surrounding its site by bringing in to use several under-utilised and currently unloved spaces.

The proposal is for a naturally ventilated building constructed using engineered timber and clad in cement fibre panels.
