project brief | cube_design was appointed in 2006 to develop an educational masterplan for Cleeve School, which could be phased over subsequent years. The design fuses the refurbished existing school with new accommodation to create a legible site with an iconic entrance and frontage.

This culminated in the development of a new prototype science department, centered on the ‘Supa Lab’. The ‘Supa Lab’ forms the nucleus of the department, integrating practical laboratory space with a central preparation area, and can accommodate multiple learning groups at any one time. This enables theoretical study, research and group work to be conducted in smaller satellite labs that encircle the main hub.
