Devonshire Road Primary School

Client: Blackpool Council
Value: £7 million

The original 2 storey Victorian building was destroyed by a fire caused by an arson attack.

The school’s exemplar design is focused around a bee-hive concept which provides classrooms and play decks on the same level and a commitment to sustainability – a roof garden, complete with pond and weather station is on the second floor for outdoor science and environmental studies. At the heart of the school there is a flexible social area for dining and for children to interact through the day.
