Award for the most exciting use of colour in a building - Winner

Penoyre & Prasad has transformed the original 1950s LCC school 'campus' with its utilitarian image into an exemplary modern learning environment for 1,200 pupils.

Aluminium has been used extensively throughout the new works, most noticeably in the recladding of the main teaching block. Aluminium structural glazing and curtain walling are used in the dramatic new roof over an existing external courtyard to form the school's new entrance and foyer, the new heart of the school.

The introduction of a crisp roofline of aluminium copings and fascias to the existing buildings and connecting newbuild elements has successfully transformed the buildings across the site into a common family.
