Remodelling and extension to provide a new main entrance for the Academy that acts as a landmark and creates a pleasant and welcoming environment for visitors, pupils and staff.
The Academy suffered with a very squashed reception area that was tucked into a corner that didn’t reflect the ambition or aspiration of the learning environment.
The project provides large one and half storey reception area, reception desk, meeting room and accessible toilet. The curtain wall glazing provides openness and together with roof light maximises daylight to the space.
The double curved roof and curved facade provide a sympathetic contrast to the rectangular form of the existing building.
