    Concept1.

    Signpostingtheschool.StairTowerTreatments

    Drawing on the concept of visibility, the stair tower could become a visiblebeacon from the town, from the approach to the school and whilst on site acting as a the signpost for the school to the wider community.

    A hi h level stri ali ned with the u er red band around the school can

    serve to signal the school from a variety of directions.

    Cladding panel treatments? Taking patterns and graphic ideas onto thesurface itself?

    Concept2.

    Speaking1000words.MainEntranceTreatments.

    The school have expressed a real interest in creating an especially welcoming

    entrance foyer to the new building that reflects the ambitions and product ofthe schools social and academic activity.

    The ro osal takes a aller a roach to the entrance, dis la in u to 1000

    postcard sized images/montages each produced by one of the schoolcommunity a parent, student, teacher, supporter, governor.....

    The material qualities will also be developed to create a high classenvironment that looks to combine natural stone from local contexts along

    with a sensuous curved seating area that acts as the waiting area.

    The reception desk itself becomes a sculptural cabinet exhibiting trophies,objects and artefacts that belong to the school.

    Concept3.OpeningMinds.

    Opening Minds Pod.

    Enhancing the sense of antithesis that this is a really special place int he

    school that is unlike others.

    Looking at more relaxed ergonomically designed seating that allows users torecline perhaps alternate reclined (fixed permanently) seating with standardseatin in between.

    Looking at upholstered seating elements as a whole unit including fromfloor level to padded back rest as one continuous piece.

    Looking at special surface treatments gold leaf, quartz plaster, leather

    floors and seats....

    Wed like to develop the narrative around this space with you all.

    Concept4.

    ColourChangingwalls.

    One of the ideas resented b the student rou was to create a school thathas colour changing walls/surfaces depending on the time of day, weaatherand mood.

    This could be developed as a light work implementing colour changing LEDstrips as a string of colour through the whole school that can be programmed

    links to the external daylight lux levels/colour of the sky, timetabled events.

    The staff su ested it ma eventuall su ersede the bell/alarm s stem in theschool ... Wouldnt it be great if we could shift away from having bells, sothat the colour of the school changed as each session drew to a close and it

    was time to move on....

    It could have many layers of subtlety whilst at the same time acting like acrude traffic/warning light system.
