location: Tufnell Park, London

year: 2004/05


For an architect client we produced of a detail design and tender package for a new built nursery, classroom extensions and accessibility improvements to the existing primary school. The selection of natural materials and honest detailing throughout the building were subject to the understanding that the children's environment should foster their development (e.g. tactile surface qualities, natural light). Construction details were drawn down to scale 1:5 including large glazed openings, plywood linings, skylights, a brick cladding with stepping bond, flush felt parapets with internal drainage and hard surface landscaping including a play-deck.
