Kingswood Pre-Prep and Nursery, Bath
A new nursery for Kingswood School in Bath. Currently on site, completion summer 2018
Kingswood School, as part of their ongoing building programme, and within the framework of their Strategic Masterplan, are creating new accommodation for the Preparatory School.
The school wish to address the demand for Pre-Prep and Nursery by constructing a new building, specifically for this use, alongside new reception classes which will smooth the process to starting Preparatory School.
The new buildings will take the form of a collection of pitched and hipped roofs. Roofs and walls will be clad in western red cedar shingles, a woodland crafted response, with a scale that children can relate to. A plinth is formed in a tactile brick which has the tones of Bath stone, relating the building to the wider school site and the World Heritage City.
