When South Kent College went 'incorporated', we were pleased to be asked to carry out a series of projects. This photo shows the restoration of the Victorian Chapel and its conversion to a cafe and meeting gallery (in conjunction with Lynn Davis Architect).
Refurbished Lecture Theatre
As part of the 'dowry' from the education authority, the drab and inefficient lecture theatre was refitted with new AV and seating, a fabric ceiling and a bespoke console for lecturers to control the lighting and projection facilities (in conjunction with Lynn Davis Architect.)
Palmarsh Pre-School Nursery
This little 2-class play school was executed on a very small budget and has references to Noah's Ark, as the primary school is sited in a flood plain and planning conditions reflected the need to 'anchor' the building and so on.
Stella Maris Primary School
Stella Maris RC Primary School needed a new year 6 classroom after we were commissioned to prepare a report for the 'shed' that previously served the purpose, but which was condemned.
Eastry Primary School
A feasibility study to re-site Eastry Primary School as part of the proposed redevelopment of the old hospital site - in conjunction with Dover District Council.
Now Folkestone Academy
Subject of a grant aided master plan, to integrate the buildings, and the primary and secondary schools that existed on the site. Working with staff and pupils, we devised a family of signs and improved the circulation around the site...subsequently, the buildings were removed to make way for the new Foster designed Academy.
