treloar's design ideas
14 November 2013
fabrik’s bankside studio was awash with creativity as staff gathered to design unique experiential environments for Treloar School and College. It was a fast paced, fun and colourful sketch morning as teams competed to develop and present the most inventive ideas.
Gloucester House external living space, designed as an Alice in Wonderland, oversized, colourful and stimulating environment for the younger residents to enjoy and hang out in their spare time.
An extension to Gloucester House, with fold down tables for eating and socialising outside, productive fruit –growing walls, a cantilevered pergola to provide shade whilst watching the sports, retractable partitions and rebound boards which have light up text messaging panels and patterned shade sails.
Clearly visible from the entrance space an elevated treetop trail to promote challenge and achievement would frame the central space for the annual graduation ceremony
Zip wires, wheelchair washes, glass and planted tunnels.
Multi sensory woodland and swale garden.
Tree houses and look-outs, willow walls and periscopes all manipulating views.
‘Road’, ‘rail’ and ‘water’ routes replace standard paths, with a variety of surfaces and experiences to challenge and enjoy.
Modular coloured learning pods linked to National Curriculum targets.
A barfuss trail for wheelchairs, varying textures and sensations along its length.
