Bishop Strachan School

Stakeholders of The Bishop Strachan School contacted Farrow Partnership to create a vision for the new student centre. The goal was to expand the facilities to encase an open space/atrium to provide students with a place to meet during academic down-time.

Fully glazed along its length, the centre creates a dialogue with the school’s historic façade across the open court. Set against this rich backdrop, the ensemble of rough-hewn stone and warm woods respects the school’s architectural tradition and also communicates a contemporary freshness.

Farrow Partnership assisted the school with its fundraising campaign and in turn the budget requirements for the additions and renovations were met.

Farrow also designed the library and the Bishop Strachan School Head’s house.
