ARK BRUNEL PRIMARY ACADEMY TheÿARK BrunelÿPrimaryÿAcademy is part of a larger mixed-use scheme including the development of 42 residential dwellings and 2 commercial units. The scheme maximises the use and value of the tight urban site to create a new 3 storey school with increased capacity and increased external play area, in addition to providing 3 residential sites to part fund the redevelopment of the school. The new Primary Academy provides 2 forms of entry, a 30 place nursery and a specialist Speech and Language Centre for 16 pupils. The heart of the design of this Primary Academyÿis centred around stacking learning clusters that increase the flexibility and future adaptability of the learning environments. These face onto two quiet courtyard play areas in the centre of the urban block. The upper levels also open onto external teaching terraces to provide a variety of learning environments. The larger communal and community spacesÿface the quiet residential street at the front of the school. The building form has an articulated roof line and features that lend it a civic scale and quality. www.penoyreprasad.com
