O’LearyGoss Architects were selected by Clifton High School, Bristol, following a competition in 2020, to design their new Sixth Form Common Room. The site was the car park behind their Georgian Grade II listed Sixth Form Centre in the Clifton Conservation Area.

Our scheme, enthusiastically supported by local amenity groups, received full planning and listed building consents in 2021 and started on site in March 2022 with O’LearyGoss acting as Contract Administration and Principal Designer under a traditional JCT contract. The newly christened Walters Building was opened in April 2023.

The new building combines traditional materials with contemporary forms, and connects back to the listed building with a glazed link corridor and spiral stair enclosure. The double height Common Room is a dynamic open space with a ground level ‘cafe’ floor and a balcony mezzanine above.
