Architectural exterior photography of Carmel College, St Helens
Carmel College St Helens, commercial architectural photographs
These pictures were from a series of interior and exterior photographs of two new buildings at Carmel College, St Helens Merseyside commissioned by Kier North West, the construction company. In July 2008 work started on creating outstanding facilities to match Carmel’s outstanding reputation. The new Centre for Art and Design was completed in Spring 2009, closely followed by a new teaching block providing state-of-the-art facilities for the sciences and humanities which comprised clean lines, white render and photographed very well. It was very modern and functional with break out areas and IT access areas at various points on each of three floors.
The Art block was funky and contemporary with a large expanse of window for natural light and two corrugated steel end blocks which looked very futurisitic. The only problem to perplex the poor architectural photographer was that the building itself was in very close proximity to an older building opposite and made photography very difficult as I was to get far enough back to photograph the whole area. The corrugated steel finish photographed well when the sun was shining directly on to it.
