Kingswood Academy

RIBA National Awards 2013 Citation:

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.

Internally the stars are the art rooms with their showcase on to the internal street, denoting the school’s specialism in Visual & Performing Arts; the cafes and break-out places with views over the piazza; the centrally located and glazed bully-deterring toilets; the adaptability of the dance space; the unusually placed first floor sports hall and the spacious laboratories under the saw-tooth roof with extraordinary views across the city.
