The architects have designed a series of insertions into a Brutalist concrete school and made it work.

The most obvious intervention is also the most engaging and thoughtful: a robust, inexpensive and low-maintenance Corten steel block set on a glazed-brick plinth which has given the school a distinguished, powerful and lasting new identity to the street.

Perhaps more notable is the sensitivity with which other more modest insertions have been executed. Indeed, with careful reworking of existing materials and detailing, many are so seamlessly integrated it is a challenge to identify them.

The work is not just a quick fix, rather the architects have repaired, reinterpreted and preserved a building with a challenging architectural style that might otherwise have been overwhelmed or even lost.
