OLD SCHOOL HOUSE
The Old School house was of little architectural merit; its significance lies in its embodiment of a previous era and the rural community that it served. Built of bricks with a slate roof, it comprised a single room for teaching, lit from both the east and west by two large windows and an ancillary room to the south which served as a cloakroom.
In the conversion of this building to habitable accommodation it is therefore this simple character that has been preserved and enhanced.
Poole Phillips Associates were engaged by the client to explore how the interior design of the converted School House might be designed in a more sympathetic manner, and in which the School House’s spatial qualities might be retained.
