Language and Resources Centre (LARC)
A new state-of-the-art facility is soon to rise from the turf at Christ’s Hospital. Designed by one of the leading architectural practices in the South East, Miller Bourne, the new Language and Resources Centre (LARC) will grace the landscape of CH overlooking Big Side to the South and the Garden Quad to the North. Essentially contemporary in concept, the LARC has been sympathetically designed to complement the existing buildings, opening up a new chapter in the life of this stunning site.
The School, which was founded in 1552, wanted a 21st Century flagship building to house 14 classrooms, a new state-of-the-art library/study centre and the school’s central ICT facilities. The winning design forms the fourth side of an existing quadrangle and looks out over the school’s extensive playing fields.
The new-build will fit comfortably within the surroundings of the schools Garden Quad and is designed to minimise energy consumption, contributing to energy generation through renewable sources, such as solar panels and air source heat pumps.
Tully De’Ath have been appointed by East Thames to undertake Masterplanning services on the proposed redevelopment of Bromley by Bow.
The aim of the development is to replace derelict and under-utilized industrial space with a high quality mixed use development. As well as providing a range of new employment space, the scheme will create an attractive and accessible riverside environment.
