Wessex School


School Project

The Wessex Primary School building provides a new focus, entrance and link between two existing schools, recently amalgamated.

The several rooms that make up the building are arranged as elements on a stage and enlivened by the daily passage of pupils between the buildings.

Between these sculptural forms, views of the school grounds behind area readily apparent.

Colour and form are used to create a distinct structure that provides views of the landscape behind and is a clear arrival point for all visitors. A strong roof form helps to unify all elements below.
