Kingswood Academy Hull – 18 Jun 2013
The new school built as part of Hull’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme acts as a visual and intellectual beacon in the flatlands of east Yorkshire, providing learning opportunities for the whole community. Taking as its reference the confident multi-storey Victorian schools that towered over their neighbourhoods, the external form is bold yet simple and the cladding is practical and sharp, reflecting light dramatically at certain moments.

240 Blackfriars – 1 May 2013
The key feature is a chamfer progressively sliced off the angled facade as it rises up the building, the architects describe it thus: “Terminating the vista from the south end of Blackfriars Bridge is the crystalline form of this 20 storey office building wrapped in a fluid pinstripe glass skin”.

AHMM design : Kirk Balk Community College – 28 Jun 2012
Aware of the wilful form-making that has characterised a large number of Building Schools for the Future projects, the architects proposed a solution that comprised of two simple geometric forms, a triangle and a rectangle. In the wrong hands this approach could have been leaden, here it is endlessly subtle.
