Kingswood Academy Hull
The new school built as part of Hull’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme acts as a visual and intellectual beacon in the flatlands of east Yorkshire, providing learning opportunities for the whole community. Taking as its reference the confident multi-storey Victorian schools that towered over their neighbourhoods, the external form is bold yet simple and the cladding is practical and sharp, reflecting light dramatically at certain moments.
