St Anthony’s School Sports Hall and Reception

St Anthony’s Way, Margate

A Kent County Council project for a special needs school in Margate, Kent. The brief was a new 3 court sports hall with changing accommodation, as well as a new entrance for the school with offices and reception.

Robustness is paired with style to create an inviting and attractive building that can withstand the knocks and bumps that happen in any school, but even more so in a special needs school. The result is a building that does not feel institutional or oppressive. High ceilings and plenty of natural light make the spaces feel more generous.
