Project Description :

Rio designed this single storey contemporary extension to the existing Sapperton Primary School near Cirencester. The 160 year old stone built school reflects the Arts and Crafts style and is an historic reference within the village of Sapperton. The new extension comprises 2 new teaching classrooms, WC’s, cloak rooms and display area.


We proposed a well proportioned and elegant structure which is raised over the steeply sloping garden to the rear of the school, thus retaining important ecological features and also providing a covered external area for pupils. The design concentrates on creating naturally lit spaces with views into the beautiful surrounding landscape. The layout cleverly stitches the existing spaces with the new providing a harmonious school where the new extension enhances the existing building without compromising the original character


The proposals were immediately supported by both the school and the Planning Authority.
