New quad at Shrewsbury ready for new term
Work on the new quad at Shrewsbury School, which RMA radically re-designed and landscaped, was successfully completed in time for the start of the autumn term.
Our design included upgrading the central pool, known as Oliver’s Egg, surrounding it with May-flowering Malus ‘Evereste’ trees; and creating a central sunken lawn to provide space for both informal spill-out and events.
We also added a linking timber pergola and linear seating beneath trees, as well as softened edges to buildings.
The design has drawn together the surrounding architectural styles, both old and new, and created a renewed sense of place at the heart of the school campus.
