Language School, Salisbury

The new teaching facility at an independent language school near Salisbury was completed in 2014 on time and to the contract value, which consisted of eight classrooms, a Library, an ICT suite, Science Laboratories and staff facilities.

The design was derived from an understanding of the site which originally formed the formal gardens of the country residence, using a sympatric scale, massing and materials. The sloping site required extensive landscape works, drainage alterations and tanking forming an inner courtyard with the construction works being managed while the school continued to operate.
