LT Studio has been instructed to provide the landscape design for the redevelopment of a preparatory school and boarding annex at a private school in Bath. The total construction value of the project is £6m.
The scheme will maximise the site location and will offer interactive opportunities for the children to explore, touch and experience. The surrounding landscape will be developed into an area of learning and play through discovery. This will take the form of outdoor classrooms which celebrate nature.
The new classrooms will offer a dynamic environment for children’s learning and opportunities and offer an ‘outside in’ environment where children come and go from outside directly into their classrooms.
The design will develop the existing provision for ‘forest schooling’ celebrating the amazing resource of mature trees and woodland that exists on the site whilst improving wildlife habitats, adding edible gardens, orchards and green infrastructure such as biofilltration systems and recycling of rainwater.
