This new primary in the Georgian planned town of Wick is composed of a series
of extruded linear wings, above which
a lightweight roof weaves and folds in conjunction with the contours of the sloping site. The roof appears to separate from the east and west facades, this effect accentuated by the contrasting black soffit, carved out to form shelters and courtyards.
The staggered arrangement of accommodation creates a physical link between each wing, from which a series of dynamic internal and external spaces are located. The use of glulam timber and polycarbonate internally creates a warm, calming environment.
