MEA are delighted to be working with Stowe School again on their plans for a new DT Block.
For the last three years the Design and Technology Department at Stowe have been awarded the Good Schools’ Guide ‘Excellence in Product Design at an English Independent School’ in recognition of its outstanding exam results. However, the current DT facilities which were built back in the 1950’s are now inadequate for their increasing requirements.
The proposed new facilities designed by architects Design Engine, will include a new structure of 1,400m2 with gross internal area of 1,170m2 increasing the number, size and quality of the workshops and classrooms to create a fully integrated centre to accommodate the Stowe’s expanding pupil roll and the ever-changing demands of this innovative subject. There will be distinct ‘designing spaces’ and ‘making spaces’, a dedicated area for teaching and learning resources, storage for materials and large-scale projects together with a rooftop exhibition gallery to showcase the work produced.
