Project Description

A £2.1 million project consisting of the construction of a series of single storey buildings that link into the existing school, all having a separate function which include classrooms and a sixth form block and linked through a glazed circulation area all with associated external works. Materials were a key consideration in the design process as well as the physical form of the buildings. The walls of each block have been clad in cedar and the roof of each building has been clad in zinc, accompanied by a series of glazed lanterns which provide natural light into the principal spaces.

Achieving regional winner at the 2015 LABC Building Excellence Awards for ‘Best Education Project’ and currently entered for the 2016 RIBA awards.
