Boys’ Accommodation, Windermere School
The brief was to provide an imposing building with first class student accommodation and common room facilities which would be economic to run and maintain. The use of traditional materials was requested and we were asked to exploit the the magnificent views from the site.
Our design solution was to access the main entrance at upper ground floor level with common facilities enjoying the views through a glazed facade and balcony with the bedroom accommodation provided at lower ground floor level. Traditional materials of stone and slate were used with robust concrete floors and high levels of insulation.
