First Look: Forest Park School in Hampshire

  • Comment

These are the first images of Forest Park school in the New Forest by Hampshire County Council’s in-house architects

Enabling works are expected to start this summer on the £11.2 million project which recently won full planning approval. The proposal includes purpose-built accommodation for 72 primary school children with learning dificulties.

Special facilities include a nursery, hydrotherapy suite and an all-weather play court; these will also be available for use by the wider community. Key spaces such as the hall and dining room are clad in dark timber with a combination of dual and mono pitched zinc roofs.

The school is arranged as a collection of buildings interlinked by canopies and arranged around a series of courtyards. The amount of external space is maximised by placing buildings up against the north and west boundaries. The landscaping of the site is ‘inspired by the heathland that characterises much of the New Forest National Park’.

The new school will replace two existing institutions, one of which will remain open until the completion of the building which is due to open in Spring 2011.
