More about this product

Footprint Architects have designed a contemporary new classroom development at Downton Primary School using Rodeca translucent building materials. The two-story building provides new KS2 classrooms, group space and ancillary accommodation for the primary school. The contemporary teaching spaces allow the school to expand from a 1FE to a 1.5FE and retain the communal feel of the existing school.
