Designed in close discussion with head teachers, Chatterbox is a sheltered meeting place, a place to rest and chat or even an open air classroom. Several options are available for seating.
Chatterbox can be designed to fit most space and size constraints including square, rectangular, hexagonal as well as an option designed to fit corners.
Gazebos have become more commonp[lace in schools over recent years largely due to the attractive shape they present. They are a cost effective solution to provising a playground shelter perhaps for waiting parents or outdoor teaching, although we would advise a Chatterbox as the most suitable structure for a more flexible outdoor classroom.
Chatterbox shelters can come in all shapes and sizes and with different features if required. Features such as Dutch Gables, valleys and hips on angled shelters, integral roof lights and even clear coverings can be integrated into the design giving the shelters a more individual lookthan standard Chatterboxes.
Chatterbox is a perfect structure to adapt to match building styles and features. Features such as a roof covering or the roof pitch can be altered to reflect and enhance elements of existing buildings in instances such as gradedlistings or planning rules requiring sympathy with the environment. Our timber frames are often a prefered option to steel, more attractive and more sustainable.
