Plymouth School Of Creative Arts

Plymouth School of Creative Arts, The Red House, is a place to develop the richness and individuality of human creativity. This all-through school, located on an inner city brownfield site and sponsored by Plymouth College of Art, allows 4-16 year olds to connect with a local artistic tradition going back to 1845. Through making, performing and discovering, the school pursues its core intention of Creating Individuals and Making Futures.

Such ambition of creative educational ecology requires a departure from conventional teaching methods and spaces, in fact, such creative educational ecology requires inviting an entirely new habitat. Industrial in character and varying in height, plan, light and scale, the school’s design stimulates and charges the teaching environment. It is a place for making things – making ideas, making technology and making art.

Building good schools is more than an architectural challenge. It is also a societal, political and educational challenge. The Red House embraces some unconventional teaching methods where knowledge and creativity is encouraged to flow between teachers and peers.

There is no “art room”, art is made everywhere. The school’s values guided the design of this building, and the architects reciprocated by putting those values on show with three interlocking spaces to create clarity, legibility and a unique teaching atmosphere. This school could be a new prototype for creative learning. It is a building of the arts, a gateway to Plymouth, and a new heart for the local community.
