Camera Obscura created for The Croft, Crofton School, Stubbington, Hampshire
Commissioned by Hampshire County Council, July 2011

We were asked by Hampshire County Council to create a camera obscura for the new sensory room at The Croft, Crofton School. This new 200sqm building provides specialist facilities for pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to the eastern district of Hampshire.

Working with the architect Dan Keeler and the building contractor we integrated a large bespoke lens into the circular roof to create projections of the sky onto the white circular floor below. On a cloudy day the children can sit around the darkened space and watch the clouds above move across the floor.
