Project: Richmond High School
Location: Richmond, North Yorkshire
Description: Designed by practice founder, Denis Clarke Hall, the building is a rare example of the 1930s Modern Movement in northern England. The design combined load-bearing walls of local stone with concrete construction, realising a synthesis of modern and traditional elements that marked a distinctive progression for British architecture.
Richmond High School’s architectural significance in pioneering post-war school design was recognised as early as 1971 when it became a Grade II listed building.
Client: East Riding Borough Council
Date: 1938-40
