GSSArchitecture are pleased to announce that planning permission has been successfully achieved for a new boarding house at Rugby School.

The development will provide study bedrooms for 60 pupils, with large communal rooms and a main dining room on the ground floor, catering for both students and staff. Additionally, the design includes a rooftop terrace and a double-height atrium, situated at the heart of the building, providing flexible social and study spaces.

Acting as Architects and Quantity Surveyors for Rugby School, GSSArchitecture were delighted to win this project in a design competition. Working closely with the school, GSS have developed a concept which delivers a high quality living and learning environment.

Judith Robinson, Estate Manager at Rugby School, said “We are very excited to have achieved Planning Consent for what will be the School’s first new build boarding house since the 1930’s.”

David Allsop, Senior Partner at GSSArchitecture, said “We are delighted to have obtained planning consent in record time. This was achieved with a thorough and proactive working relationship with the local planning authority and Rugby School. Well done to all involved.”
