BDP architects created a new school over six levels — comprising a ground floor nursery, three floors of classrooms and a rooftop teaching room.

Meanwhile, our 6000 sq m (64 500 sq ft) residential scheme delivered 52 apartments. To ‘reclaim’ land lost to housing, BDP architects created covered play areas on every level of the school — each open to the air and separated from teaching zones by a bridge across a light well.

A steel frame and an arched truss covered by a tensile roof create a large column-free space on the fourth floor. The outer envelope is made from brick and glass, while balustrading forms the curve of the playdecks.
