Primary and Secondary School in Barnet

An open courtyard makes a space to build around.

With Douglas and King we won planning permission for new Primary School in Barnet, North London.  The triangular site is bounded by suburban houses and gardens, and a brick railway viaduct.

The proposed building is broken into two elements with differing roof levels and which are laid out to create a quiet courtyard space between them. There are three play areas – a linear play area running parallel and adjacent to the viaduct, a kindergarden play area and a roof-top playground.

Planning and Construction drawings have been completed. The construction commencement has yet to be determined. The estimated construction budget is £1,600,000.
