Larmenier and Sacred Heart Primary School is the amalgamation of separate junior and infant schools onto one site. Extensive consultation with staff, parents and pupils inspired designs that created a world for young inquisitive minds where the question “Why?” would be encouraged and never ignored. Within a landlocked site with two 120 year old plane trees, a two storey spiral building responded to its environment, incorporating the Fibonacci “golden mean” as a symbol for its young community – the mathematics of nature within the structure of their building.
Larmenier and Sacred Heart Primary School is a wonderful example of how thoughtful architects teamed with a great client to produce a beautiful and functional building which respects its environment and values its users. Ty Goddard, Director BCSE: Larmenier & Sacred Heart Primary School
