Sherwood Forest

Nottingham 2006

Our aspiration for the project was to create a building intertwined amongst a constantly changing tapestry of living landscapes. At the heart is a clearing or gathering space interlinked with the building, flexible classroom layouts and communal resource areas. The themed educational courtyards between the clusters link to the internal street, giving views to the open space beyond.

Essentially the project encompasses all the aspirations for modern transformational school design. It is not purely about a new set of buildings but about new learning methods, community use and optimisation of site and landscape.
