            THE ARCHITECT


 Jonathan Tuckey Design bid against three other architects for  this project. His thoughtful and innovative approach, driven by research, study and consideration, won his practice the mandate.

Jonathan founded his practice in 2000, having originally

studied anthropology. He will be leading the project design and development alongside his associate, Peter Youthed and the practice team.

Peter came to architecture after studying philosophy and having worked in cinema and theatre.

“Jonathan’s approach balances the needs of the site with those of the clients. He asks the clients what they hope to achieve with their project, what their top priorities are and what they want to feel about the finished space when they walk into it.”

Charcoal Blue have also agreed to be part of this project. The company is the most exciting and innovative theatre and acoustics consultancy in the UK. Founded in 2004, the company has worked with The Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre and Glyndebourne Festival Opera.

Charcoal Blue have a clear understanding of the needs of a boys prep school of 120 boys aged 7-13 years. Although they have worked with some of the greatest theatre companies,

they remain grounded in theatre practice and performance and are driven by a passion for all types of performing arts projects, big or small.

Charcoal Blue has a unique collaborative approach based on developing user-led projects that meet clients’ needs. Their relentless attention to detail will ensure that Horris Hill gets the best out of the space being created.
