Cowley St Laurence
This project consisted of additional education facilities for this primary school in north west London. The new building infills an existing space between buildings and provides a new entrance space to the school. Cladding to the building includes a facade made entirely from Lego bricks.
To minimise disruption to existing live service routes, the steel and timber framed structure spans across the existing space. At first floor level, a storey deep steel and timber truss spans behind the glazing as a structural stability element.
Throughout the project, the school was kept fully open requiring the careful phasing of works with minimal intrusion into the existing building fabric.
