Thornhill Primary School wants pupils to develop a love for learning. The school library is integral to achieving this mission, empowering children from as young as 4 to script an autonomous learning experiences in an inspirational environment. The new library makes use of a former undercroft to create a multi-functional space for browsing, readings, performance and role play. The design process mobilised the entire school community. Workshops with pupils defined our design brief, fundraising efforts were supported by everyone with parents, careres, neighbours, alumni and local businesses all doing their bit. As a result, Thornhill Primary School now has a new library, but it also has a bunch of budding architects and an even more tightly knit community who are proud to be associated with the school.
