Stunning infant school designed in 2011 by Jessop and Cook Architects located in Witney, United Kingdom. According to the architects: The proposal will involve the demolition of the existing canteen with a foot print of 163m2 and the erection of a new foundation stage classroom and external covered play area with a smaller foot print of 160m2 which includes 110m2 of new internal floor area and 30m2 of external covered decked play area. The new building will provide a 73m2 foundation stage classroom suitable for up to 30 pupils with WC facilities, a disabled WC/washroom and a 18m2 additional teaching space available for use by the whole school.
The layout has been designed to break up the length of the site and reflect the various pitched roofs of the existing school building, whilst creating a engaging internal and external environment. The form of the building has been staggered in relation to the separate functions of the scheme. The front section of the building will provide a covered external play area linked directly to a newly defined playground surrounded by a new 1.1m height timber fence for use by the foundation stage only. The central section of the scheme will accommodate the level access entrance and cloak area and the main classroom space which will include wet and dry areas and a raised play alcove.
