A naturally lit model school in Wiltshire
Fynamore School is located in a Persimmon Homes residential development on the outskirts of the Wiltshire town of Calne. It is a development of Stride Treglown’s S106 primary model school concept, this time realised in seven-class form as a single form entry.
The design allows for future expansion to fourteen classrooms when further expansion requires this. The rooms are arranged in pairs with toilet and cloakroom facilities for each pair. A central roof light lets natural light into the corridors and hall and also forms part of the building’s ventilation system.
In orienting the building we took full advantage of the sun’s path and ensured that the hard court play area is sheltered from the sun.
