Gallions Mount

Jo has been working with Gallions Mount Primary School since 2009 to help the school to maximise the spatial potential of their buildings. The initial project was to convert a former Premises Manager’s house into an ICT suite, staff work room and parent's room.  To create the necessary space the first floor had to be structurally altered and fitted with a new staircase.  Further projects have involved the conversion of a plant room into a classroom requiring a new access stair and a one-storey extension into an internal courtyard to create a new office, music room and small group teaching space.  Each intervention has been developed in close dialogue with the school and sympathetically with the existing 1970’s building.
