Project Overview

IMG_0713The School Building Improvement Programme undertaken by City of Cardiff Council, Education Service Area, outlined a design brief for a Three Form of Entry Welsh-medium primary school and nursery on a vacant site on Sanatorium Road in Cardiff. The brief highlighted the need to transfer Ysgol Treganna Primary School and Ysgol Tan yr Eos Primary School from their existing premises into the new facility for the start of the academic year in September 2013.

Projects Design and Development were appointed by Education in a multidisciplinary capacity to deliver the project from inception to completion.

The design philosophy for the primary school aimed to provide the building with a unique identity with an educational aspiration to provide state of the art facilities for the community of Cardiff.

IMG_0696Aesthetically the building utilises a combination of traditional and modern materials in a contemporary arrangement, that create a vibrant and attractive facility for both pupils and the wider community. The balance of hard and soft landscaping is a critical aspect of the design ethos where the landscaping compliments the built form to provide a more engaging space for staff and pupils and enables the external environment to become an additional teaching and educational resource.
