Bedales School named as RIBA Client of the Year

We are delighted that Bedales School in Hampshire has been named RIBA Client of the Year 2017. Nominated by FCBStudios, the school was the client for the recently completed Art and Design Building and also for the RIBA Award-winning Olivier Theatre, completed by FCBStudios in 1996.

Judge Tom Bloxham said “This relatively small building demonstrates the ability to deliver something of value with a constrained budget. The students of Bedales were at the centre of the process from the outset…It’s great to see an institution like a school putting so much energy and effort into its architecture, hopefully other schools and institutions can take inspiration.”

Manchester Metropolitan University won the Client of the Year award in 2014 for its work with FCBStudios on the Manchester School of ArtBusiness School and Student Union.
