CBHS Caddick Caldwell Block
As much a masterplan intervention as a series of buildings, this project is cleverly woven into the existing fabric of Christchurch Boys’ High School, and creates a series of courtyard spaces along with new approach and entry points. The buildings are robustly detailed with materials that reference the colours of the existing built environment, while providing an interplay between the new and the old in their form, shape and colour. Internal spaces are handsomely proportioned with plenty of daylight and colour to enliven the teaching spaces. A successful integration and a lesson in marrying the new and the old, while maintaining a clear distinction between the two.
