Following an initial competition entry, we were selected to design and develop a primary school in Farndon, Cheshire. Within a restricted budget, the proposal sought to redefine the site as a two-form-entry primary school.

 

At the heart of the new development was a new classroom block extension. The restricted site limited space for such a development, but through carefully considered design, spatial awareness and natural light, a proposal was developed that created a positive learning space. These teaching spaces were connected via a teaching street. Through designing a corridor as an expandable teaching street, this allowed for additional teaching spaces and also enhanced social interaction through learning.

 

Education inspector’s quote:

‘…the architecture and classroom spaces created deliver a environment that enhances the children’s ability to learn. The spaces directly affect the quality of teaching spaces provided for the pupils..’
