St Margaret’s School

St Margaret’s School in Bushey approached TaskSpace in October 2021, with various parts of the main Waterhouse building that needed refurbishment and a design rethink.

After a number of design strategy sessions at the TaskSpace Design Centre, it was established that the priority spaces were the Senior School Library (including two adjoining rooms) and the Oak Room (the staff lounge).

In the spirit of creating a ‘Gold’ scheme with genuine wow factor, TaskSpace included a number of statement design features as part of the scheme:

Oak Room

  • Raised platform area with inbuilt seating, giving best view of the beautiful outlook
  • Relocated kitchen facilities for optimum space efficiency
  • Feature lighting to distinguish social, working and kitchen zones


  • Executive boardroom feel within Rudland study & meeting room, including AV system and suspended acoustics
  • Bespoke joinery package to combine book storage units with reading areas
  • Central curved feature table with matching linear lighting

The project was carried out during the 8-week summer break, a highly demanding schedule considering the extensive works required.
