One of a pair of new build sustainable schools for Bath and North East Somerset Council. Mark Kingsley was the Project Architect at NVB Architects responsible for all aspects of design and construction associated with both schools. The design challenges the institutional norms associated with school design and aspires to create an exciting environment in which children want to learn. Each school utilizes off-site manufacture (timber frame), natural daylight, natural ventilation and heat recovery within a thermally efficient external envelope.
