A planning application has been submitted for extensions to Winchcombe School to support its expansion by one form of entry. Robothams undertook a BB103 analysis of the existing accommodation concluding that there were shortages of sport, science, SEN, DT and dining facilities. In addition the project would include improvements to the reception area to strengthen the school’s safeguarding approach.
The school is located on the edge of the town close to the neighbouring village of Greet and visible from the wider Cotswold landscape. Extensions have been designed to sensitively sit within the wider context and compliment the existing facilities.

Robothams have been working with a charitable school in Hackney to create a brand new school for 120 children, combining a nursery with an SEN school. The new school had received planning consent in 2007 and 2015 however the trustees appointed Robothams to take a fresh look at the design and ensure it accorded with the guidance of BB104.
The Side by Side school will move from its current site on Big Hill near the River Lea to a new site on Arbor Court near Clissold Park. The design consist of accommodation across four floors with external play space at the rear and at roof terrace level.
The project is anticipated on site in 2020.

Client, Oscar Homes have recently completed the construction of two new family houses in Mickleton designed by Robothams Architects. The four bedroom houses sit in rural surroundings and address the local context and the amenity of neighbours.
Construction work is progressing on A C Lloyd Homes’ residential scheme in Lapworth, on a site bordered by countryside and leafy canals. Robothams Architects have designed the scheme’s 38 new dwellings in a contemporary style drawing on the rural context and using local materials. The houses are generating a considerable amount of interest from purchasers with a sales suite opening in May.
The 1st May 2019 saw the grand opening of Aston University’s new students union building. The event brought together the whole team who were involved in delivering this vibrant new addition to the University’s campus, and facilitating the continued redevelopment of its city centre home.
Robothams Architects have led the design team both on the construction of the shell and its fit-out ready for occupation in the coming months. The scheme has been delivered using a design and building contract with Clegg Construction.
