The Tring Park School for the Performing Arts was founded in 1919. It is set within the historic context of Registered Parks and Gardens, Grade II* listed buildings and situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Hertfordshire countryside. The manor house - is a former home of the Rothschild family, used by the school - boasts influences of two of the most acclaimed architects in British history, including Sir Christopher Wren and Capability Brown.
A new building for student accommodation and learning facilities was commissioned by architects Burrell Foley Fischer. We were selected to supply and install the new furniture that fitted with the design ideology.
We carefully selected and supplied furniture to support function, which not only looks good but is robust and long-lasting, as well as providing specialist storage functions for drama and art areas. This created an engaging environment that is conducive to learning & concentration whilst being sympathetic to the historic building in which it is housed. Chairs and soft furnishings in greens and blues were selected to relate to the wonderful views of the trees and countryside and to work well with the exterior design. Our approach was to select furniture that was durable enough to meet the daily needs of pupils whilst still providing great aesthetics.
