The Pascal Building, St Peter’s School

Client/Developer: St Peter’s School
Architect/Designer: Harmer Fitz
Builder: F Parkinson Ltd


The character of the school campus is varied, with a strong heritage face to the north, and a more utilitarian feel to the rear. The site is also the entrance into St Peter’s from the lower school, St Olave’s. The demolition of the existing 1960s buildings provided an opportunity to enhance the overall setting of the Listed Buildings.

The design sets out to create an architectural approach that references the existing scale, massing and selected details of the surrounding buildings in a contemporary manner. Brick was identified as the key unifying material from the immediate surrounds, with stone being used on details and features. The roof combines flat and pitched elements as well as photovoltaic panels.
