Windsor Girls School, Windsor – New Sixth Form Building
Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead
New Sixth Form
Completed September 2023 and handed over to the School
Edgingtons were engaged by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to develop and deliver a new build sixth form building for Windsor Girls School. The new building was required to have six classrooms, two offices, a meeting room, a breakout/refreshments area and sanitary facilities.
There are a number of mature trees on the site, with one large oak tree in very close proximity to the build site. We developed the design to retain and take inspiration from this tree, resulting in the articulation of the brickwork detailing at ground and first floor level to reference the different textures of the tree trunk and canopy.
The building is orientated with the majority of rooms facing east or west so the fenestration has been recessed into the external walls and deep mullion profiles used to provide solar shading to reduce glare and overheating throughout the day.
