Sandal Magna School

RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

Sarah Wigglesworth’s first new-build school is exemplary in so many ways. The diagram is clear: three fingers of accommodation with play spaces in between. The rigour has resulted in a highly functional but exciting building, full of curiosity but simple in plan form. The services are integrated into the children’s learning. There are snaking copper sprinkler pipes, transparent rainwater pipes and a hundred square metres of solar panels. The playfulness continues into the classrooms, with traffic lights indicating CO2 levels.

The school deserves high praise for its design quality, functionality, sustainability and aesthetics, but most of all for the joy it brings to all its users.
