A stripped back brick colonnade is given character by the expressive roof scape lined with CLT. This attractive addition to the school campus has large communal spaces as well as galleries and 10 classrooms. 

Some interesting spaces and junctions are cleverly applied to the historic buildings. This new structure is an intelligent enclosure of spaces between existing buildings and deals with different levels. Confident creation of space encourages unforeseen use; simple sustainable technology keeps its demand for heating and cooling low.
