An unusual structure in flint and green stone.
Three big round gables and an
octagonal pyramid roof. The doorway has a big rounded hood. 1903-4 by
The recent modern extension is a
combination of zinc cladding, glass and yellow brick. The three staggered
pavilions of yellow brick are dressed with creamy yellow oolitic
limestone. The plan of the pavilions is lozenge-shaped rather than square
to avoid right angles for acoustic purposes. There are butterfly
roof-lights over the top floor ensemble rooms. Circulation areas and
stores (also without right angles) separate the pavilions, further
improving the acoustics.
