Ceara Special School

Refurbishment | Education
Ceara on site 7 nbjj

Ceara School occupies an s-shaped building which was built in the 1990s, providing facilities for children with severe cognitive and physical disabilities. However, as the school had outgrown its existing premises and had expanded into several temporary classrooms, the decision was taken to extend the school and remove the temporary accommodation.

In contrast to the floor plan of the existing building the new extension has an angular footprint carved into the side of an existing bank. A sinuous corridor links the old and new. The new extension has a fragmented aluminium roof which sites on clerestory windows, lightweight cladding and brick walls
