This exciting expansion of an inner East London primary school has just been handed over. A new, two storey classroom block attaches to the existing school by way of a glazed link, increasing the number of pupils and improving the overall layout and operation of the school. Constructed to strict Passivhaus environmental standards, the building also takes advantage of passive solar gain and should yield energy savings of up to 80% compared to standard construction.
Open-City have organised a guided talk and tour of this ground-breaking project as part of their Green Sky Thinking week on Tuesday 21 April at 4pm. Green Sky Thinking is a week long, London-wide events programme highlighting innovative practice on how we ‘design in’ sustainability for London. More details of the event can be found here and more on the building can be seen here.
