ROSLA Uffculme School

Uffculme, Devon, UK.

This redundant and dilapidated science block - a remnant of the 1970s ROSLA (“Raising of School Leaving Age”) generation of school buildings - has been successfully upgraded and converted to provide new Art & Textiles teaching spaces, plus additional dining facilities for older students to ease the pressure on the school hall.

The design involves substantial internal refurbishment, over-cladding of existing walls with insulated render and timber boarding, over-laying of roof with insulation and polymeric membrane, and renewal of external doors and windows.  The refurbishment has been used as an opportunity to create a modern, naturally well-lit and sustainable piece of architecture.
