Ivydale Primary School , London – Projects
- London Borough of Southwark
This project was a two storey CLT framed new build primary school. The project involves doubling the capacity to 4 FE by providing a new building for KS2 on a site within close proximity to the existing school.
Classrooms are arranged in clusters of 4 year bases (KS2) arranged around the central hall. At the heart of the school is a double height naturally day lit atrium space that provides an informal performance space with tiered seating integrated into the main feature stair.
The landscape proposals create valuable external play spaces next to the new school buildings. A multi-use amphitheatre at the centre of the schools outdoor activities extends the schools passion for performance and provides a platform between the hard social courtyard and the soft informal play space beyond.
Ongoing engagement and consultation with the school has been an intrinsic part of the development of the brief and Concept Design. A series of consultation workshop meeting have been carried out with various stakeholders, including design workshops with the children, to discuss and review some of the key design aspects.
