Project Overview

This is a significant and delightful junior school extension and refurbishment set amid the green playing pitches of the Blackrock Campus. Willow Park School has been transformed into a modern 670 pupil primary school enclosing a beautiful, landscaped courtyard. Internally the school focusses on light filled concourses and a galleried central assembly space.

The new classroom wings are seamlessly integrated with the retained sports centre and the protected house. Classrooms are cross ventilated with passive stacks controlled by temperature and CO2 sensors to ensure air quality and contribute to good teaching outcomes.
