Work starts on Shrewsbury School quad
Work has recently started on site at Shrewsbury School, where RMA has been commissioned to radically re-design and landscape the Moser quad, ready for the opening of the school’s new state-of-the-art facility for design and information technology.
Our design includes a central sunken lawn providing space for both informal spill-out and events, and a bosque of May-flowering Malus ‘Evereste’ set around an upgraded central pool known as Oliver’s Egg – named after Edward Oliver who was the school engineer for four decades from 1892.
We have also added a linking timber pergola and linear seating beneath trees, as well as softened edges to buildings. The design seeks to draw together the surrounding architectural styles, both old and new, to deliver increased legibility and a sense of place at the heart of the school campus.
The work is due to be completed in late August, in time for the start of the autumn term.
