White Design were commissioned to design a new home for Dartington CE Primary School, near Totnes in Devon. The £6M project, was completed in February 2010, provides places for 420 pupils.
The previous school has a wonderful, vibrant environment, where the quality of learning was outstanding. The challenge for us as designers was to understand and transpose this unique quality into a new building, to be located on an adjacent field. Early in the design process, White Design organised a series of consultation events to ensure that the new school fully reflects the aspirations of pupils, teachers and the wider community.
