Winchester College’s New Hall building

The latest modifications to New Hall, which were designed by architects Barnsley, Hewitt & Mallinson (BH&M), not only incorporate a new feature entrance and foyer, but also substantial improvements to the main performance space with the inclusion of operable bleacher seats, new mechanical ventilation and changes in room geometry to enhance the buildings’ acoustics.

Four of Encasement’s 450mm diameter column casings are used as a main feature within the new entrance design and stand up to 5800mm high to conceal the structural steelwork that supports the front edge of the pitched canopy.

A further 16 casings were also supplied and installed by Encasement within other parts of the project, including the new glazed foyer area, with all 20 casings coated in a RAL 7015 grey PPC finish to integrate with New Hall’s interior design scheme.
