Kimbolton School – Dining Hall Extension
GSSArchitecture were appointed as Architects to design a new dining hall extension for Kimbolton School, an HMC co-educational day and boarding school located in Cambridgeshire.
The extension comprises a courtyard infill extension to the Mews building, that dates from around 1870 and houses both music rehearsal rooms and the main school dining hall. The project provides additional seating and a new kitchen servery, which has significantly relieved the pressure previously experienced by the school at lunch times.
Key elements of the design include a front façade of high-performance frameless structural glazing, a lead-effect roof containing a glazed clerestory, and reinstatement of two chimneys to the gable walls either side of the clock tower.
