Kings College School Pavilion on site

The new sports pavilion at King’s College School, London is about to begin. This image shows the temporary road being laid and the setting out of the pavilion next to the astroturf pitches at West Barnes Lane, Raynes Park, London – November 2010

MBA’s new Theatre at Cumnor House School wins Sussex Heritage Trust Award, 2010.

Designs are progressing for an extension to the east end of Holy Trinity Clapham, London, William Wilberforce’s old church. The detailed of this religious architectural project’s proposal will be shown here soon.

To the right is a view showing how new meeting rooms could offer an exciting, engaged eastern facade for the church, echoing the materials of the Grade II* Listed building but deploying them in new ways to create the impression of a floating structure rising from the ground.

The new building, an extension of the original church, will also up-light the existing east end, giving greater prominence to the pedimented east elevation.

MBA have been appointed architects to a new residential project in Wimbledon. The multi-million pound project involves creating a series of spectacular rooms and extensive landscape works including a series of water features, taking advantage of the sloping site.

The programme of conservation at Westminster Abbey Chapter House in London is now complete.   The project, which was on site for 18 months, completed on time and under budget for our client, English Heritage; with work completed by Nimbus Conservation Ltd.  The works were directed by Stow & Beale Conservation Architects, the specialist conservation arm of MBA.
