Designscape Architects prepared a feasibility report for the expansion of the school accommodation. Despite being a rural school, it has no on site playing field and only five classrooms, but seven year groups. The school had the possibility of acquiring some adjacent land as a playing field, and needed to explore the potential in future of adding two classrooms.
Our proposal managed to link the new playing field via an amphitheatre outdoor area, and replaced the playground space given over to the classrooms with an elevated playdeck on the classroom roofs, linking with existing first floor classrooms. The proposal also sought to address other issues such as access and security and proposed some ideas for parking and pick–up space.
