Ted Cullinan’s design for a gatehouse at the entrance of the Torriano Junior School in Camden has won planning approval
Edward Cullinan Architect’s 200m² gatehouse will provide flexible space for the junior school to allow Torriano to increase the range of activities it offers children, parents and the local community.
The double-form roof allows the upper hall to be naturally ventilated and echoes the strong symmetry of the original Victorian school building.
A spokesman for Edward Cullinan said: “The project was developed in consultation with the school, parents and local people. It aims to further community partnerships by increasing the range of activities offered by extended services at the school. Pupils will gain from extra space for creative work.”
Construction is planned to start in February
