Students for years 10 and 11 at Lady Manners’ School have seen their ideas go from the drawing board to reality and have transformed a dull courtyard into an exciting area where students can relax, display artwork and perform music and drama.
The School worked with Walter Jack, a leading architectural designer and public art maker in developing a design idea.
The aim was to create a diverse multifunctional space that did not dictate seating or tables but allowed a variety of activities as and when needed. Ultimately they came up with a tubular design.
They chose to redesign the Courtyard area as it was currently un-used and at times, off-bounds. This was due to poor drainage on the majority of the surface and a lack of functional areas. Due to this, they decided that a permeable surface would be the best option. They ordered our DIY Kits and used Sureset resin-bound natural aggregate for the main surface areas and resin-bound recycled blue glass for the in-filling of the tubes. Sample areas were made up to make sure that the SureSet created the look they wanted and provided drainage and they were delighted with the results.
The Children were involved all the way through the design process and even worked to put the main structure together.
The result was a fantastic, modern, eco-friendly and more importantly usable space for the children and the school. They plan to renovate more of their functional areas in the future and we hope that they will use SureSet once again.
