The Sinking Ship

The Sinking Ship continues Blackhorse School’s maritime theme and provides an active & social space with much needed shade to replace that lost when the diseased Ash Tree had to be felled. The Head Teacher had a vision for a sinking ship which we brought to life within the constraints of the existing space.

Blackhorse Cove
The tree provided lovely shade but was suffering from Ash dieback
Once the tree had been removed the space needed a new function
The new ship fits with fall zones within the footprint left by the tree
Flotsam and Jetsam
The Sail Shades and packing boxes create a shady seating space
