Silverstone Primary School

Client: Northamptonshire County Council

Construction commenced early 2016.

The existing Infant and Junior Schools are amalgamating and moving to a new 2FE  Primary on a site at the edge of Silverstone village. The plan is arranged with a central spine containing the Hall, Library, admin and community spaces, from which two teaching wings (relating to different age groups) spread into the landscape, creating sheltered external areas.

The building is to be constructed from off-site fabricated SIPS panels to minimize on-going energy costs. The building is clad in Siberian Larch and local stone, with window reveals highlighted in bright colours.
