Brent Knoll School in London say that they are “creating excellence in special education” Their setting is a brand new multi-million pound building. It was designed and built with the needs of young people with autism very much in mind. The specialist facilities are superb. It is the outdoor area which we love, smart creative design. They have installed all weather areas, including sand pits, play frame equipment and a wonderful tiered water play area.
These great spaces are available to the children even in hot weather because they have added not one but seven shade sails to offer UV protection. A&S Landscape added five rectangular shade cloth sails over the water play area as well as two sails over the play area and sandpit area. All the sails were installed in matching Turquoise fabric to bring the areas together. The end result is a striking design.
The whole school building was so impressive that it was shortlisted for an architectural award. The most important customers, the children themselves, are very happy with their outside space. Enjoying the area even on the sunniest days of the year. The option to have time outdoors and enjoy different activities is particularly important to children with additional needs and at Brent Knoll School the options are almost endless. What a super school. We were delighted to help bring this very special vision to life.
