08 _ Broomlands Primary School
The brief is to create welcoming, attractive and secure school grounds, with the provision of spaces for teaching and learning. Through the design of the external environs and use of planting we have created spaces that will have an immediate positive impact upon arrival and help settle the building into it’s semi-rural and wooded landscape context.
The external play areas are both ‘light and restful’ and ‘rich and invigorating’ through the creation of multi-functional spaces, materiality and planting. There are spaces for children to; learn, rest, sit, run, eat, listen and play; noisy areas and quiet areas.
The design of the grounds allows circulation around the school and aims to create a feeling of openness in ordet to avoid any spaces that may allow for anti-social behaviour. Planting has been selected to coincide with the woodland setting of the school, whilst providing seasonal interest through the use of more ornamental verities. Ornamental planting in the Sensory Garden has been selected to heighten the senses whilst remaining robust and attractive.
