24 Clifton School and Nursery

Developer/Client: St Peters School, Clifton
Architect: Harmer Fitz

Extension and refurbishment of both buildings and landscape to improve the reception area, the library and the outside play areas.
These alterations and refurbishment of the original 1980’s building, involve a small amount of new building to reform the entrance, some remodelling of the interior and the reordering of the external approach and play areas.   The design shows considerate and witty invention at every level, from the laying out of the new building and landscape down to the design of the reception desk, the graphics in the new library and even the choice of the story-telling chair.

All the new features large and small are integrated into the whole in a way that is practical, original and delightful – and clearly gives great satisfaction to the users and client.
