The William Jones Building takes prominence within the historic heart of Monmouth School.

Designed as a contemporary interpretation of its neighbouring listed Victorian buildings, the new William Jones Building responds to the scale and gravitas of its surrounds. The use of red sandstone for the façade combined with a dark zinc roof creates a striking presence within the existing estate of Monmouth School.

The Williams Jones Building is almost four times larger in size than its predecessor, providing 21 classrooms to provide optimum learning environments for pupils, as well as a series of administration offices, the Headmaster’s office, plus conference and lecture facilities.

The building optimises the use of daylight and natural ventilation while minimising heat loss and energy consumption; using low energy electric lighting and a mechanical ventilation system (with heat recovery). The correct level of lighting and ventilation is achieved, while the indoor air quality and CO² levels are kept in balance to optimise pupil health and concentration for teaching.

The project involved the excavation of the site, retention of adjacent buildings and the provision of a link between the upper and lower parts of the school site.
