Knop Law Primary School marks a return to the core values of how children are nurtured and taught in intuitive and ambitious surroundings. An atmosphere of ease and yet formality permeates all the activities of the school, engendered at least in part by the architecture; the inquisitive thought in the design will surely find its way into the minds of the users of this delightful place.

Knop Law Primary School, Newcastle

Expression of use has been distilled to an honest few elements; a blade of division between wings is vertical white render; a zone of classroom is a horizontal plane of glass; clear balustrade or metal cladding. A narrative of colour is also used to differentiate zones of use.
