Internal finishes


We developed the internal finishes for the scheme and devising the colour palette for the building was an important first step of this work.

An engagement programme with pupils was developed to explore colour; its meaning and function. Children mixed artists' gouache water colours and selected colour chips from the Dulux range to compare and contrast. The favoured scheme was a palette which took inspiration from the colours on the Chase. The overall philosophy was to use a feature wall colour in each classroom with stronger colours fading to subtler tonal variations as pupils progressed through the years. External render colours were brought through onto internal walls in order to link the two areas visually and functionally.
