FCA provided layout proposals for an existing school in rural Carmarthenshire where the buildings were to be extended and improved. The acquisition of neighbouring ground would allow parking to be brought on site to improve safety, and the school grounds to be extended with more potential for play and outdoor education.
Sloping ground was both a challenge and an opportunity – children love to play on grassy slopes. The design incorporated a series of levels with formal play and a ‘lookout point’ at the top, an amphitheatre built into the slope, an orchard and grass maze on the middle terrace, and a nature area with willow hide and wildlife pond on lower ground.
