Blatchington Mill School
Two storey extension of classrooms and ancillary accommodation, set within a south facing courtyard
The design works with the rhythm of existing windows to create repeated structural bays, all facing south within an enclosed courtyard. The bay concept creates a façade with depth for all the storage requirements and set back windows with solar shading. The proposals use thermal mass to stabilise the internal environment working in conjunction with passive stack ventilation and wind catchers.
