Refurbishment of a secondary school campus, with the demolition of extensing teaching buildings and retention of the swimming and assembly blocks

The design consists of four teaching pavilions, a new sports hall and performing arts building. The layout arranges these buildings around gardens, lawns, squares and a central pedestrian spine - forming a legible diagram that is easily navigated.

The pavilion typology has classrooms and ancillary accommodation arranged along a central corridor with voids and double-height spaces at the ends and laterally off it to connect to the exterior; thereaby admitting natural light and making a visual connection to the campus.

The pavilions have a consistent width defined by classroom depth and proportion. This regular plan is followed through to the elevation with the precast concrete cladding pannels.
