Restructuring has taken into account the existing neighbouring buildings:
- A nineteenth building on a U-shaped plan with a frontage of 85m on a street elevation 3m
- An eighteenth century building that leans up against its neighbour.
The design of the new building integrates the restructuring and a new extension, allowing the college for 500 students to evolve.
The restructuring work included the removal of the existing entry and the creation of a large entrance porch through two levels, the porch serving both the college and a theater. The porch defines the entrance and gives an identity to the college.
A south-facing courtyard is created by a long glazed gallery which connects two new concrete stairs which provide access to the new rooms.
A series of steps in front of the gallery allow students to sit in the open air and to enjoy the sun and they are a response to the location and other buildings. The extension creates a new volume in the west wing of the college.
