GHA has a long-standing relationship with the school after first providing a masterplan for its complex and historic site. Saint Martin's inhabits Malvern House whose outbuildings include a pair of stable blocks by Sir John Soane.
The new pavilion between the stables acts as a sensitive foil to Soane’s work and contains the expanded sixth form centre. The second phase included an extension to an historic quadrangle to provide a library and IT facilities.
A new-build double-height performance building with a main flexible space and dance studio (both acoustically sealed) has been sunk into the landscape, carefully negotiating the relationship between the grade II listed stables and walls as well as considerable archaeological constraints.
