Have your say

A SCHOOL has won an award for its art and design building.

Bedales School, in Petersfield, won the 2017 RIBA Client of the Year award which recognises the key role a good client plays in the creation of fine architecture.

The school was nominated by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios which designed its art and design building.

Chairman of the RIBA Client of the Year jury, Tom Bloxham, said: ‘This relatively small building demonstrates the ability to deliver something of value with a constrained budget.

‘The students of Bedales were at the centre of the process from the outset. It’s great to see an institution like a school putting so much energy and effort into its architecture.’
