TORONTO, May 6, 2014 - Farrow Partnership has been selected to redevelop the junior school and dining hall of Toronto’s Royal St. George’s College, making this the fifth independent school in the firm’s portfolio.

Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood just north of the city centre, Royal St. George’s College is an urban day school for boys offering a challenging program of academics and extra-curricular activities designed to prepare students for placement at the university of their choice.

The redevelopment project will create spaces that support 21st century learning, including several flexible breakout areas for open seminar or group learning. A welcoming new entrance foyer will improve access to the renovated Ketchum Hall dining area. The jewel of the junior school, Ketchum Hall will be redesigned to allow natural light to flood the oversize room during both mealtime and during the range of related educational programs that the space will be tailored to accommodate. The existing kitchen and expanded servery will also be redesigned to better integrate with the educational curriculum. Upgraded classrooms and expanded staff facilities will give students and staff the opportunity to learn and engage in naturally lit, contemporary spaces that foster interaction and collaboration. 

The first phase of construction is scheduled to begin in June 2015 so as to be completed for the College’s 50th anniversary.
