Planning permission for Cypress Children Centre
Planning permission has been granted for the Cypress Children Centre. The centre constitutes the first phase of the extension and refurbishment of Cypress Infant School, a competition erect architecture won in 2008. The new building embraces an existing pitch roof nursery building. The newbuild picks up on the typology and continues the roofscape. Internally the roofscape defines and characterises the rooms, visual diagonals are created and diagonal views opened up to enlarge and enliven the spaces and create a relationship with the beautiful surrounding woodlands. The works are scheduled to start on site at the beginning of 2010.
