Walters & Cohen architecture practice shares with us their impressive £30m school building project in Somers Town. The Regent High School was formerly called South Camden Community High School, it is located in the London Borough of Camden.
“This is a very important project for London and we are very proud of the project at Regent High School. Somers Town is a part of Camden that was often overlooked and under-loved, and this BSF project is key to the regeneration of the area. Keeping the school open through construction required complex phasing, and it is to the credit of everyone involved that this was able to happen with minimal disruption to the students’ learning.” – said Cindy Walters director of Walters & Cohen
Walters & Cohen started working on the project back in 2009 when they were approached by Bam Construction who worked on the project under the BSF Design and Build contract of London Borough of Camden. Together with BAM, the school and the council they worked on the planned demolition, refurbishment and later on construction of over four constructions – estimated budget £30m.

The practice has completed projects for Kew Gardens, the Bank of England and the Horniman Museum.
The design process from concept to completion is central to the ethos of the practice. Making beautiful buildings that have civic and social purpose encourages a wider conversation about architecture within the office; projects are developed through design review, and proposals strengthened through research. Designs that are intimately connected to context and function develop through rigorous analysis of the site, brief and constructive dialogue with clients and end users.
Walters & Cohen is committed to design excellence and creating buildings that express a profound sense of place. We nurture long-term relationships with many clients and are serious about the responsible delivery of projects. Social, economic and environmental sustainability are integral to our promotion of a better built environment.
