FF wins Great Hall project in Bath

Widcombe.jpeg

Widcombe Great Hall is an exciting new commission for Widcombe Junior School in the heart of Bath. The project, won through a design competition, will deliver a new Great Hall on the foundations of the original victorian primary school. The brief called for the production, cooking, eating and recycling of food to be integral to the design and for an innovative environmental strategy. The Great Hall is to be both a school and community resource with a bold civic presence. Feilden Fowles is supporting the school to raise further funding for this transformative project.
