Loughton Manor First School, MK

EHW’s original proposal, for a Milton Keynes Council competition, incorporated all of the schools specific requirements and offered unlimited flexibility for future change or expansion. This self-contained facility, designed to complement the main school building, provides a large open-plan central play area with three smaller teaching spaces, dedicated offices and meeting rooms plus a hot food kitchen area. External play spaces are protected by a lightweight structure, and large louvred panels, which span the entire width of the front elevation, enable natural air flow through the building.
