New building for a new primary school
We have been working with this newly established faith school in their early years to help them evaluate their accommodation requirements and the suitability of premises for conversion.
A former church school building has been purchased and we have developed design ideas and options to show how the building could be adapted and expanded in phases to meet the statutory requirements, including BB99, for a one-form entry primary school, with a view to it eventually gaining VA status. We sought to retain as many of the original features of the Victorian assembly hall as possible, whilst introducing modern elements to integrate learning and activity areas. The plan is arranged along a main corridor which has been conceived as ‘street’, with appropriate hard finishes and lighting and classrooms having ‘shop windows’.
