All good in Guernsey

A sense of grandeur for Les Beaucamps School

Hampshire practice Design Engine’s success in the education sector has extended to Guernsey too. The gallic-sounding £20m Les Beaucamps School opened last year – its main block beautifully executed in brown brick with a handsome and well-detailed timber colonnade and walkways that lend a sense of grandeur while providing shade. The mood continues on the roof, where VM Zinc has fitted its black zinc standing seam roof, articulated by crisply detailed natural ventilation chimneys and sidelights to common corridors. The 8650m2 school won an RIBA regional award, pupils and parents love it; and there’s a sports block and swimming pool yet to come. Will this pleasure never end?
