This school and health centre, designed by Cullinan Studio, was opened in 2001. The structure is of steel and concrete but the building is particularly notable as an early use of larch rainscreen cladding in the UK.

Three external elevations are finished with vertically-boarded cladding in homegrown European larch and the fourth with high performance aluminium-faced timber windows.

The new house is situated in a small village near to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, on a small cul-de-sac overlooking the Solent.

The distinctive and elegant shape of the Velodrome, whose double-curved timber clad roof is a reflection of the sloping track inside, acts as a landmark to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games.
