Barnfield West shortlisted for Brick Awards

Date posted: August 2, 2011

We are pleased to announce that Barnfield West Academy, a 1450-place school in a leafy suburban area of Luton, has been shortlisted for this year’s Brick Awards. The materials and palette were chosen with the Sponsor and Academy to create an identifiable federation image, and the buff brickwork brought indoors to help reinforce the identity of the performing arts block and blur the distinction between inside and outside. The same buff colour brick is extended to the landscaping of the courtyards, paired with a grey block to help tie the external spaces to the building.
