Work in Progress: Milecastle Primary School
Continuing our work signing new and refurbished primary schools, we were commissioned to develop a scheme for Milecastle Primary School in Newcastle. Working with architects ADP, we have developed a package of external and internal signs branding the school, providing wayfinding and feature graphics using bright colours and simple typography to compliment the building design.
The new school is a comprehensive refurbishment of 1960s buildings. Built-up aluminium letters featuring the school name are incorporated into the building facade. A raised supergraphic runs along the main corridor with dynamic silhouettes of children playing.
Classrooms are identified with tactile and Braille signs mounted to the side of each door, incorporating a paper insert for teachers names. Key spaces such as the library, hall and dining room are identified with 3D graphics.
