Dining Facility, Giggleswick School

Whilst employed at Taylor Young, John Squires designed this dining facility which provides 280 covers served from a professional kitchen. It was a challenging project as the site lies within the Conservation Area, on the edge of the National Park, is surrounded by the school’s Listed buildings and was outside of the permitted development area for the campus. However, by drawing upon the vernacular style and using traditional materials in a contemporary way the project became the first of many at the school to be successfully designed and delivered by John.
