Penoyre & Prasad has won a competition to expand the St Mary Magdalene Church of England Primary School on the Greenwich Peninsula in south east London
Planned to complete in 2017, the project will create a new ‘all-through’ school campus providing education from Nursery up to 6th Form.
According to a statement from the AJ100 studio: ‘The Peninsula campus will be designed as an “all-through” school which will realise the vision of the school and the Diocese through a flexible and adaptable arrangement of formal teaching spaces, connected and counterpoised by more informal gathering and learning areas.’
The statement continued: ‘The project aim is to achieve successful co-location of the primary and secondary elements, whilst maintaining a sense of progression from Nursery to 6th Form.
‘The assembled whole forms a contemporary piece of architecture that bares a strong relationship to its site and local context while referencing the future urban context.’
