Video: Ian Simpson's first day at school

Ian Simpson Architects has won its first education project – a primary school in the Lake District’s Grasmere

Better known for its glass skyscrapers, the practice saw off Sutherland Hussey and local firm Hanson Marston Mellor to land the £1.5 million job. The scheme has a central ‘heart space’, built between three classrooms with a timber gridshell, and will accommodate up to 54 pupils - see below for concept proposal video.
