Applefields School Transition Zone

A small simple insertion into an existing school that provides much-needed facilities for children and young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.  The design had to fit seamlessly into the existing buildings to avoid drawing undue attention to the users. [This is a good example of restrained design where the architect has used his skills to make a low key statement and create the most effective and attractive use of space.  The panel believe that imaginative and modest projects such as these deserve recognition.]
