We were appointed to improve on the existing main school entrance and reception area and to create a library with group reading areas. Our solution was to generate a ‘shop front’ aesthetic utilising floor to ceiling glazing to infill and existing external overhanging roof, this provided the space for a library and generated an abundance of natural light to the reconfigured reception area. Group reading areas were generated by inserting curved dwarf pods into the existing corridor whilst maintaining the required circulation space.
