Atlantic College is a small school in southwestern Wales which enjoys a wonderful seaside location nestled close to historic St. Donat’s Castle. In 2004 the school initiated a competiton to rebuild four of the student residences.

Our competion solution, to be replicated four times in a chequer-board composition, begins with a series of four cascading courts which are actually broad paths in the landscape towards the center of the academic village at St. Donat’s. These courts are defined by new buildings in L-shaped arrangements which house both residential and communal living facilites.
