Bridgend County Borough Council - Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen

Architect: Scott Brownrigg

Contractor: Bougyues UK
Manufacturers: Orangebox, SpaceOasis

Coleg Cymunedol y Dderwen is the new '21st Century School' bringing together the former Ogmore and Ynysawdre comprehensives. In doing so, Bridgend County Borough Council aimed to raise the standards of the two old schools with the state of the art building.

The new school building included furniture from widely recognised suppliers, including Orangebox and SpaceOasis. With a new approach to the school, a new approach to furniture was also required, furniture that would enhance the forward thinking nature of this modern establishment.

We were chosen to supply loose furniture throughout the entire new school covering classrooms, IT suites, atrium space and the library.

Throughout the entire school we have given the pupils the opportunity to create their own workspace. Spaces to collaborate, study, relax, meet and share are present around the whole school including the open atriums and closed classrooms.
