Oundle School Science & Technology Centre by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

Church Street, Oundle, Peterbrough

The principle elevation of the new building cuts a striking figure against the backdrop of a banked lake. The building is context sensitive, taking into consideration the surrounding buildings and biological ecosystems. A greenhouse observatory, a banked lake on the edge of the building, and a roof all encourage students to relate to these habitats and wildlife on a first-hand basis.

Simple, easy-to-maintain materials were sourced from the local area; orientation and roof design has significantly improved solar gain; lighting designed around long-life bulbs; underfloor air circulation; and innovative uses of concrete significantly improve year-round insulation and thermal stability.
