Kingsdale School

Kingsdale School

The sports building houses a 4-court multi-use sports hall, flexible activity/dance mezzanine, changing and store facilities and spectator areas. The music school houses 5 new classrooms, 6 practice rooms, staff offices and staff social space as well as a large new performance space.

In 2005 dRMM completed a major transformation to the layout of Kingsdale School in the form of a lightweight ETFE roof canopy, suspended over two external courtyards, which created new internal spaces for circulation, dining and assembly, surrounding a free-standing library and auditorium.

The architect’s latest project for the school is a new sports hall and music school to replace inadequate existing facilities. The two new buildings run along the eastern boundary of the school site and are linked by a common entrance to create a new ‘gatehouse’ to the school grounds.
