Dulwich College, is an independent boys school for ages 7 to 18, founded in 1619. The campus is divided into two parts; the historic campus to the North and the Southern campus with piecemeal development to the South. There is extensive outdoor space for recreational activities including a number of sports pitches and playing fields.
The school is looking to renew its Junior and Lower School buildings, located within the Southern campus, and connect the old and new developments as part of the wider masterplan for the site.
A variety of spaces will be provided for passive and active uses; these should be flexible and robust to allow for events, games, and learning opportunities.
Patball originated at Dulwich College and the courts will be retained as a key part of the design.
The redesign of the play areas provides a huge opportunity to improve the biodiversity of the site and improving the balance between hard and soft landscape. An increase in planting will help to create a more relaxing and green approach and focus on a space to improve wellbeing for students.
