Dr Challoners High School- Dining and Wellness Centre
The new building forms a stop-end to the existing curved teaching block and is clad in a palette of contrasting yet complementary materials to create a separate identity for the facility.
The two-storey building contains a ground floor open plan dining space which also provides study areas after break times and opens out onto a paved external space linking to the existing grassed terrace.
The first floor provides two large hall spaces; one used for fitness with fixed exercise equipment, and the other for group and individual activities (yoga, meditation, dance).
Large glazed openings are daylight and ventilation into the spaces and provide a visual connection with the surrounding school and tree-lined boundary.
