Benenden Girls School Kent

A wonderful opportunity for Studio Dunn to work in the education sector. We were appointed to fully overhaul this barren, completely unloved and unused sitting room and kitchen space for the sixth form girls.


Design sessions were held with the students to ascertain exactly what they wanted from the space. It was agreed that it had to be multi-functional; somewhere the girls could come to study or read but also relax together in the evening in front of the TV, or even have a drink on a Saturday night. They wanted a sense of escapism from this room. The existing windows and floors had to remain so it was a case of re-building internally and creating a bold and colourful space but also somewhere welcoming.
