The single storey timber framed building sits alongside a listed building that was also converted and refurbished as part of the project. The modern design of the learning centre does not seek to imitate the list building but to complement it while the building's matt clad system helps to blend the building in with its surroundings.
Interally, the space provides four teaching rooms for the Special Educational Needs Centre as well as meeting and training rooms, administration and reception areas. Careful consideration was taken with the internal design to provide a natural environment that assists the students with their learning.
The awards will be presented by South Norfolk District Council as part of the Festival of Architecture in Norwich & Norfolk (FANN13) later in October.
