Oakham Primary School - The Little Build

Cantoo was commissioned by Willmott Dixon Construction and Rutland County Council to work with Oakham Primary school to deliver the interior scheme and run an engagement programme with stakeholders.


We worked with pupils and staff to generate concepts and resources for the new primary school. Aside from producing the interior finishes scheme we also advised on the loose furniture procurement. Our work also extended to external features including a mosaic, feature glazing manifestation and the design of a new school identity; an oak leaf design was used for the school logo and replicated on the outside of the building in folded aluminium.

Cantoo spent time with our school community and translated our ethos into colours and shapes.  This has created exactly the effect that we were hoping for.  All the children (be they gifted or severely challenged in their academic life) have taken part in the design and feel that it belongs to them.  Its created a lovely place to learn.
