Eton College – New Bekynton Field Development
In order to expand and update Eton College’s facilities and buildings , a magnificent new Quadrangle with a new central courtyard known as the Bekynton Field Development was proposed. This space is designed to house Modern Languages, Politics, Economics and Divinity as well as a 300 seat Lecture Theatre and an Exhibition Gallery to accommodate the College’s antiquities and collections. As Eton College is situated within a conservation area it was imperative the new development followed the same Classical architecture as the existing surroundings.
Eton College is an independent boys boarding school located in Eton, Berkshire near Windsor which educates over 1300 boys aged 13 to 18 years and has a long list of distinguished former pupils.
