“I photograph lots of refurbished buildings. The extent of refurbishment varies massively. For this school in Hampshire the refurbishment was all the external walls and the roof. In addition, as a part of the remodelling, a new main entrance was constructed to the front of the school.

I like this picture of the extension, constructed from timber and clad in cedar. The canopy above the front entrance is a nice touch, offering shelter and a touch of style.

Nothing fancy, but it works well.
This picture was taken for the architect Kendall Kingscott at the point of practical completion of the works. Dawnus Construction were the main contractor on this project, and the client was Hampshire County Council.

This picture is taken from a bracketed set of three images captured on my Canon 6D.”

Cedar cladding looks great when fitted. This cladding had a coating applied (Building Regs requirement) which gives it that lovely deep colour.

This picture is proof that sunshine and a blue sky really help pictures of buildings – if only every day was like this here in England!
