- Development Entrance Reception extension.
An extension to a school entrance was required, giving identity and prominence where it once lacked definition and character. A single storey entrance reception was constructed with more space for the administration office and a waiting area free from congestion.
The challenge on this project was to create an entrance that clearly identified itself, and provided an identity for the school from the public pedestrian route. The proposals had to maintain neighbouring and existing access points adjacent to the extension site. We achieved this with a swept form that created a spacious reception area and additional space for the existing small administration office. On a practical level, the extended eaves details provided shading to the large windows that contributed to a light and spacious feel to the reception area. This has resulted in an entrance that welcomes visitors, providing a great first impression of the school.
