"King's College School Wimbledon" awarded with the "Structural Timber Award 2019"

The project King's College School Wimbledon was awarded the "Structural Timber Award 2019" in the category "Education Project of the Year".

 

King's College School Wimbledon was founded in 1829 and is one of the UK's leading academic schools. In 2013, British architectural office Hopkins Architects began drafting a development plan to improve facilities at the school. The aim was to express the importance of music at King's College School Wimbledon. In the resulting concert hall, HESS TIMBER's expertise was in demand. GLT HYBRID was used to manufacture beams made up of spruce with a top layer of American White Oak to create the warm and aesthetically pleasing look desired by the architects. The auditorium can accommodate up to 200 people and there is also a stage for a 70-piece orchestra.
