Kingscourt Nursery

  • area / size 625 sqft
  • Completed 2020
  • MAP Architecture focused on modern, functional, and minimal design for the Kingscourt Nursery in Hampshire, England.

    High tech, contemporary nursery built as “shadow extension” of a Grade II listed school, originally the family home of Admiral Lord Nelson’s mentor.

    The uniqueness of this nursery scheme lays in the seamless integration of high tech materials and bold contemporary design within a conservation area. The beautiful balance between old and new proves that conservation does not have to be old fashioned, but has all the possibility of being contemporary, innovative and exciting.

    The community is hugely enriched by the addition of this sustainable building which ensures the survival of the historic school for generations to come.
