Lode Heath Academy
Post-16 Centre

Feasibility Study for Lode Heath Academy in partnership with Birmingham Metropolitan College to develop initial proposals for a 250-place sixth form centre.

The study focused primarily on the requirement for a new sixth form building, the re-organisation of the landscape approach into the site, circulation routes and car parking. The preferred option placed the new facilities directly on the main approach into the site to provide presence and a certain degree of autonomy for the students.

The two_storey building places specialist and support accommodation to the edge of a double_height central learning space containing study zones and social space, which in turns breaks out into a covered outdoor social and study space articulated with a colonnade and projecting roof.
