Castle Library

The Orchards Primary Academy wanted to utilise the area off the corridor which had book cases segregating the area, so Spencer Monaco Ltd was asked to design and build a castle to house the library.

It had to be designed so pupils could be seen by the teacher from anywhere within the area, it had to be strong and as authentic as possible.

we came up with a simplistic drawing that gave the feel when completed would look realistic with the turrets.

The construction was MDF and timber and plenty of glue and fixings, we made templates for the tops of the walls for ease of manufacture and being mindfull whatever we made it would have to come apart to be transported and installed.

Prior to being installed on site we primed and undercoated all panels and the final artwork was done on site by Gary our artist.

Once completed the pupils loved the dragon and thought they were at camelot.
