Since master planning the Stanley British Primary School Lowry campus in 1997, Semple Brown has worked continuously on phased projects for the school. The master plan articulated the concept of active green spaces that link and augment the instructional facilities. By utilizing existing building structures whenever possible, Semple Brown preserved the outdoor areas and encouraged the development of a true campus.[READ MORE]
Major projects include:
Daniels Gymnasium: The 15,000 square foot gymnasium includes a music room, creation storage, concessions space, and locker rooms. Translucent panels capture daylight to illuminate the gym interior, and glow during athletic events. In addition to athletic and physical education programs, the gym supports a wide variety of summer camps.
Science and Art Studio Renovation: this project took advantage of existing garage spaces to create flexible, industrial-style lab and studio space. The garage doors were maintained to provide access to the outdoors.
Officer’s Club Renovation: this building was renovated to serve younger grades, with a series of linked classrooms that have access to outdoor play areas. The former officers’ ballroom is now configured as a flexible event/performance venue for student performances, recitals and major school gatherings such as their annual auction.
Duplex/Classroom Renovations: existing two-story buildings were renovated to create a mixture of classroom space for upper-grade students and offices for school staff.
