St. Joseph's Primary School, Highgate Hill, London by Pie

  • Comment

[SMALL PROJECTS 2011] Pie was appointed by St Joseph’s RC Primary School to relocate their nursery school into the existing school building

This required a new foundation entrance extension, a new classroom extension, the refurbishment of existing teaching spaces to accommodate the new nursery, and the provision of new external play spaces.

The existing 1970’s school building has a concrete frame faced with precast concrete panels, with a vertical bush hammered finish. The new extensions are of double skinned insitu concrete construction. Externally the concrete has a board marked finish, resulting from varying widths of douglas fir board, and echoing the verticality of the existing concrete cladding. Internally the concrete has a smooth matt finish, and the glazed roofs and generous child height openings provide a light interior.

Start on site date 28th July 2010
Gross external floor area 324m²
Form of contract JCT Intermediate
Total cost £240,000
Client St. Joseph’s RC Primary School
Architect Pie
Structural engineer HRW Engineers
