Green Hammerton pupils have designs on Redrow show home
PUPILS from Green Hammerton CE Primary School have been taking inspiration from their natural surroundings to help design a new show home in the village.
Children from the school took a stroll around the North Yorkshire village, taking in the influences of nature and the natural colours in the environment.
Once back in class they used the ideas and inspiration gathered to set about designing a bedroom for one of the two fully furnished show homes that housebuilder Redrow will open at Churchfields, off Harrogate Road, early next year.
Redrow’s national interior design manager Emma Brindley will now take the work produced and translate it into the colours, fabrics, textures, accessories and overall look and feel of the show home bedroom.
Green Hammerton Church of England head teacher Jenny Langley said: “It is a great opportunity for our pupils to work on a real project of this nature. We are looking forward to seeing how the children’s ideas are used in the design for the show homes.”
Redrow marketing coordinator Jonny Leivesley, who previously sold the three and four-bedroom houses currently being built at Churchfields, went along to the school, on York Road, Green Hammerton to take a sneaky peak at the pupils’ designs.
“Their imagination and creativity was very impressive,” said Jonny. “We’re now really excited about seeing how Emma and her interior design team interpret the children’s designs and incorporate them into the show home, which is due to open in the New Year. The pupils involved will be invited back as VIP guests once the property is ready.”
Projects like this are part of Redrow’s commitment to investing in and supporting the communities in which it builds, with a particular interest in developing young talent and the pursuit of excellence, as well as health and well-being.
The Churchfields development includes 52 private sale two, three and four-bedroom new homes and 34 affordable properties to help ensure local people can continue to live and work in the area. Redrow has also committed to provide a number of community benefits, including £278,000 towards education provision, £39,000 for bus/metro travel cards and a cycleway contribution of £29,000.
