Superclass, Acland Burghley School, Camden, London by SCABAL

This intermediate Building Schools for the Future project at Acland Burghley secondary school includes the refurbishment of an underused assembly hall into an innovative and experimental teaching/learning laboratory

SCABAL had to re-invent the existing space, avoiding any new building work where possible. This was seen as an chance to develop an innovative concept that responded to the school’s needs and resources. The Superclass acts as a large classroom in which up to 90 pupils can work in groups of differing sizes or come together for plenary sessions.

By rescuing old and discarded in-house furniture, introducing a circular opening and creating a fresh lighting atmosphere, SCABAL gave new life to an otherwise obsolete space. 
Cost: £105,000
