Stiles and Hooker’s relationship with The Hamilton Boys’ High School Board of Trustees has developed over the past 9 years with a number of successful completed projects which exceed the schools’ expectations.

While originally intended to be an “international” block to accommodate the needs of foreign students, the Frank Sargeson Centre brief was revised and extended to include the development and future expansion needs of the Hamilton Boys’ High School English Language Department.

Stiles and Hooker’s goal was to take an otherwise fairly conservative building and add interest and give it a dimension of character to create a less static architecture and communicate “difference” in a positive light.
