Sarah Wigglesworth Architects won the Best Education Project for their Mellor Primary School project, and later they were presented with the Judges Choice Award for the highest scoring submission across all of the categories.

Mellor Primary School project

The award was for an extension to the original Mellor Primary School in the form of a ‘tree house’ incorporating a cluster of pitched roof forms, all set on a deck extending out into the landscape. The core structural solution is timber used for its robust, low energy and sustainable properties which reflect the ‘Forest School’ activities and permit the extended building to blend seamlessly in its Green Belt setting.
