Hatchford Brook School, Solihull

The brief was for the extension to a 1950’s junior infant school building to form a new foundation, nursery unit.

The design solution provides a flexible, open plan teaching space which links with adjacent reception classes and opens out to a secure covered external play area through a large glazed façade.

Features and facilities are, where possible, designed to suit the young users with small, low level windows, seating and storytelling alcoves as well as a wet area.

A new entrance to the space provides a friendly and inclusive environment for the young users, parents and teachers.
