Uppingham School - Samworth's Boarding House
Uppingham School is a place of architectural contrasts, tradition and modernity harmoniously intertwined; it is a large estate that is an intrinsic part of the historic market town.
There are diverse boarding houses, from contemporary houses embracing the latest thinking in biophilic design, to welcoming townhouses redolent with history, and the tranquil hill houses set in 19th-century Victorian country homes.
We have been appointed to upgrade several boarding houses over the years – projects which are important for the welfare of students and staff alike.
These projects start with a review of the internal architecture, joinery, window treatments and finishes - with our contribution working with internal staff. We then meet with students and staff to incorporate their views and preferences in order to make the houses their home.
We recently completed Samworth's House, which is one of the more modern houses; an uplift in colours and finishes really helps the floors to have their own identity and to feel light and bright.
