Schools 2

blog sch221

Continuing my series of quick colour sketches, I visited two very different schools, built decades apart.

Byng above has a very formal main entry, typical of early institution buildings. Queen Elizabeth below has a very different main entry : two similar doors, allowing choices – perhaps confusing newcomers. Interesting use of colour and materials – vertical pink wood curved over entries, red brick base and smooth creamy yellow walls.
