The brief for this design project was for a new nursery school with an ancillary
detached house. The site being an infill site located in a long established residential
area with existing houses on all four side.
A scheme was developed creating a variety of play and rest areas with varying
degrees of flexibility and with the option of expanding into external spaces. The
perimeter trees help cocoon the school from the surrounding roads.
A right-of-way existed across the site and this was maintained and used to
separate the school from the detached house.
A design has been developed using expressed structure, glass cladding and
the subtle and playful use of colour.
