Lady GaGa once said 'The sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be.'
I have literally no idea what that means but here at Rocktownsend Monday afternoons are for cake. This week was Richard Sharps turn and he did not disappoint.
The staff, parents, governors, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield and David Blunkett MP this week joined with representatives from the design and construction teams to mark the opening of Owler Brook Primary School's new facilities. The entire School was designed by Rock Townsend as part of the Sheffield PFI scheme, scheme completed in 2001. The recent works delivered a standalone extension to house 60 pupils in the Nursery and Reception class. The design overcame the challenges of the sloping site and requirements for increased external play space by delivering the new Playdeck - balconied external playspace floating in the canopy of the site's trees.
Rock Townsend have this week received planning approval on behalf of Aldwyck Housing Group for the re-development of disused garages to provide 4 one bedroom flats at Wayside, Potters Bar.Our vision for this site is to create a sustainable development that respects the character of its location, bring a new invigorated built form to the site and to create a sense of place for both residents and passers-by.
