St Michael's Primary School, Colchester

Feilden+Mawson in collaboration with Morgan Sindall won a mini-competition setup through the Essex County Council Schools Framework to design and deliver the 1 Form Entry expansion of St Michael's Primary School and Nursery.

The peri-urban site in Colchester posed key challenges of providing accommodation over two floors and minimising the visual impact against a back drop of open playing fields.

Our winning hybrid design solution minimised land take by stepping the building mass whilst maximising open views for each of the 8 teaching classbases. The accommodation also includes a new centralised kitchen and small hall.
