Bradfield College, The Close, Boarding House for Boys
Changes resulting from the move to co-education and improved standards, described above, resulted in the need for additional boarding accommodation in the mid 2000’s amounting to about 60 students. The new three storey building accommodates over 60 boys in single and double study bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities. In addition there are matron’s and tutor’s flats incorporated, as well as the Housemaster’s house at the southern end. Ancillary accommodations includes a laundry/linen room, tea making facilities and common rooms for the boys.
The modern style of the building captures the traditional local vernacular, with traditional facing materials relating directly to the finishes of adjacent buildings and to that typical of many buildings at the College.
