Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects designed an extraordinary, internationally award-winning school that started with a most challenging set of constraints. Completed in July 2007, the designers took on the project with a 'research and development' perspective that set a high bar for innovative. Designing a school for children of varying ages, needs and disabilities presented a not inconsiderable challenge as Dunlop reveals: 'We didn't have a brief we had client requirements, we had design objectives. This building has to be absolutely brilliant kind of thing.' Secured by design proved to be a heavy imposition on the architectural team, this necessitated the use of CCTV cameras and strenuous health and safety requirements.
