UK-based architectural and design firm John McAslan + Partners (JMP) has won the competition to create the master plan for Dulwich College in London.

The £20m ($32.2m) project is designed to transform the 1,400-pupil school's 303,512m² campus for its 400th anniversary in 2019.

John McAslan + Partners won the competition beating practices such as Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, Bennetts Associates, Grimshaw Architects, Arup and Marks Barfield Architects.

The priority for the new master plan is to re-establish a flexible pattern of movement and improved navigation, transformation of redundant spaces into areas that contribute to college life, fortifying the existing site layout centred around the primary axes of the Barry building, and offering better access and use of all parts of the site.
