The Saunders Centre Science and Technology Building

Page\Park Architects

The requirement to keep abreast of the current needs and expectations in the sciences has resulted in a significant new urban block for the Academy. The building includes a new 178 capacity auditorium complemented by a generous wrap around foyer. Surmounting this floor is a floor each for Physics, Biology and Chemistry where four general teaching labs together with a sixth year lab are arranged along a glazed break out and bay windowed passage overlooking the historic main school. The design of fittings, selection of furniture and bespoke graphics and signage bring together both the architecture and interior. The project, situated in a sensitive conservation area, required careful negotiation with both the local authority and residents through the process. The Academy hosted regular community meetings to engage with, inform and mitigate any concerns surrounding the project. This process strengthened these community relationships and allowed the project to progress smoothly.
