Extensions, Alterations &
St Lawrence C of E Primary School, Hurstpierpoint
West Sussex County Council and the local Diocese decided the school would be the most appropriate in the local area to be increased in size to accommodate the immediate local need for primary school places.
With an intended pupil capacity increase of 50%, many areas of the existing school requested reconfiguration or expansion.
A significant design restriction we had when developing the masterplan was to not impede on the external sports/ playing areas, whilst being surrounded around the majority of the site by either roads or residential properties. We ended up with five key areas of works, with the most significant are being to the rear where we designed a two-storey building, clad in Western Red Cedar.
The project was presented with a Conservation and Design Award in 2016 by the Hurstpierpoint Society.
