client: Leicestershire County Council
Kast Architects was selected via an invited competition as the architects to design a new primary school on the outskirts of the city of Leicester for Leicestershire County Council. The school has a simple plan to aid with orientation, with all classrooms overlooking the play areas and sports pitch, and a central street containing LRC areas and break out zones. The main hall is easily accessible out of hours for extra revenue for the school. The project was completed on time and on budget in July 2016 and the first cohort of pupils have now moved in.
"It looks brilliant! The building is light, spacious and has a real welcoming feel... the children will absolutely love it. Many, many thanks for all the thought and hard work that has gone into creating such a fabulous school"
