Maidstone Primary School Reception Reconfiguration

We were approached by a client that had some early ideas for this Maidstone primary school reception reconfiguration project. The school had a vison of what they needed, which was to improve and maximize the space in their reception area. Together, we worked with the school and came up with some design ideas that would enhance future use of the area. The main objective was to create more space for visitors and parents, incorporating  standing and seating areas. The area also included a more spacious entrance area to receive visitors and deliveries.

The school wanted to make the reception more welcoming to visitors with the original layout consisting of a reception hatch in the wall of the administration office. With the new open layout the reception provided an improved open space encouraging interaction of office staff and visitors. To achieve this we removed a wall to the office and installed a new bespoke curved desk with a top box to house a computer. The school requested that the area was secure but without looking too enclosed. The solution was glass screens installed from the desk to the ceiling which encouraged a secure, light open feel. We also created a new toilet for visitors which was a welcome addition for waiting parents.

The school are really pleased with the new reception area and have since asked us to look at future works.
