Wesley Hall

Wesley Hall

Project Description

After the demolition of a 1960’s building, a new main entrance was built in its place connecting the 1920’s and 18 Century Listed buildings either side with the use of high quality matching materials.

The Challenge

We were approached by the Architect to produce a narrow Prime English Oak engineered Board for laying over under floor heating together with matching Prime English Oak treads for the architectural steel stair cases.
Whippletree worked closely with the Architect, client, and contractor on the technical detail of how to make the large areas work from a movement point of view both for the floors and the stair treads and risers which had to have certain ‘shadow’ expansion gaps designed in so as to carry the overall design theme through.

The Results

An extremely stylish college refurbishment and extension but including the practice every day functionality required for a busy learning centre.
