Phoenix High School Sixth Form CentreEdit profile
The design for the new Sixth Form Centre challenges and excites students by providing a flexible and dynamic learning environment for all. Matching the aspirations for the school, the new design creates a social ‘heart space’, which connects the sixth form centre to the main entrance of the school. Visually, the concept for the new building turns the regimented horizontal timber and glass aesthetic of the existing 1950s buildings on its head, to create an elevation comprising of vertical timber panels of varying sizes, repeated at random intervals and framed with subtle colours. These resulting elevations have been likened to a string of liquorice allsorts.
