Boarding House Glass Link Corridors

At Johnson Design Partnership, we specialize in blending historical charm with modern functionality. In response to the latest Department of Education regulations, we’ve designed glass link corridors to connect boarding houses seamlessly, ensuring compliance with current standards while preserving their historic essence.


Meeting New Boarding School Standards


Recent updates to the national minimum standards for boarding schools mandate an internal connection between staff and student quarters. Our bespoke glass link corridors provide a compliant and aesthetically pleasing solution, maintaining the integrity of listed buildings and enhancing the school’s infrastructure with minimal impact.

Innovative Design Solutions for Historic Buildings


Given the architectural significance of many school buildings, traditional extensions were not a viable option. Our frameless glass link corridors offer a sleek and unobtrusive alternative, seamlessly integrating with the existing structures and preserving their historical value.


Phased Construction for Minimal Disruption


Understanding the importance of the academic calendar, we meticulously planned the construction phases to ensure minimal disruption to the school’s operations. Our approach allowed for continuous progress outside of term periods, ensuring a smooth and efficient build process.

Collaborative Efforts with Expert Teams


Our project was a collaborative effort, bringing together a multidisciplinary team including quantity surveyors, M&E specialists, and structural engineers. We acted as both architect and principal designer. This comprehensive approach ensured that every aspect of the design and construction met the highest standards of quality and safety.
