St. Peter’s School Reception

Architect/ Designer: Harmer Fitz
Client/Developer: St. Peter’s School
Presented by: Mr. Stuart Martel, Assistant Editor, The Press, York

This handsome new building, inserted into a rather pokey corner of the original Victorian  complex, provides a striking new entrance and a handsome reception area to the school.  The simple design strategy is backed up by a host of inventive and delightful details – the free form ceiling with it’s stylised cross of rooflights; some elegant built-in furniture; the careful refurbishment of the stonework openings of the existing building.  The amalgam of new and old buildings in this showy interior is a great success.
