Squire and Partners, workshop for St James school in Ashford

 
For the Design and Technology Block of St James School in Ashford, a town in the county of Kent, in southeastern England, the London firm Squire and Partners celebrated craftsmanship and traditional building techniques. Inspired in the simple structures and bold morphology of vernacular architecture, the sober pavilion is clad with dark-toned vertical wooden panels. Its slate roof is crowned with a pyramidal skylight. Striking a contrast with the exterior, the entrance of daylight from above accentuates the brightness of the interior, where the framework of timber beams uses traditional pegged mortise and tenon joints.
