area 58 sq. m. new build
Happy Days needed to extend their nursery at Hardengreen, near Dalkeith – a listed Georgian house – and decided to do this with a new classroom in the walled garden, adjacent to the house. The client wanted the new building to be constructed quickly. The response was to deliver a simple, timber-framed structure that is clad in Scottish larch. The classroom’s windows are all floor-to-ceiling, affording plenty of light and enabling the children to look out over the walled garden.
