Turning a roof into a unique learning space

Abington Vale Primary School's rooftop conversion will become a space for local groups to work

Posted by Hannah Vickers | May 18, 2017 | Outdoors

Work has started on rooftop conversion. Abington Vale Primary School’s rooftop will be turned into a unique and inspiring outside learning environment.

In 2013, using GSSArchitecture’s innovative design, Stirling House was transformed from unoccupied three storey office accommodation into a contemporary learning environment for Abington Vale Primary School. The development has provided a range of flexible teaching facilities and increased the opportunity for a creative curriculum, which will be further enhanced by the new rooftop space.

The new rooftop conversion will allow local groups from the arts, drama, music, sports and the environment, working both independently and collaboratively, to support the social, emotional and personal development of children and families in Northampton.
