Colerne Primary School Bike Shelter
The Colerne Primary School Bike Shelter was designed by Wiltshire in the Mitchell Taylor Workshop. Piers Taylor’s site specific bike shelter was designed as an educational vehicle in collaboration with Colerne Primary School.A number of schemes were developed by the architects and students in a series of participatory workshops and after a school-wide vote this design was chosen.
The hyperbolic parabaloid shape was generated by the desire to create a self shading structure to protect bikes and students from the sun and driving rain. The structure was funded entirely through a green travel grant. All the timber used was donated by a local land owner and of course there are no C02 emissions.
