Up-and-coming practice Feilden Fowles has unveiled proposals to revamp two sites run by outdoor-education provider Capel Manor College in Crystal Palace Park, south-east London

The £4.9 million regeneration project for the college, which specialises in teaching animal care, horticulture, arboriculture and garden design, is being funded by London’s Economic Action Partnership (LEAP).   

The scheme will overhaul existing outdoor learning sites, replace current classroom facilities and create two dedicated teaching buildings in the park.

The 50-year-old college, which has its main base at Bulls Cross in Enfield, north London, said the 2,970m² project was part of its ‘ambition to create an outstanding land-based education and training facility’ in Crystal Palace.

The scheme is due for completion in 2019.

  • This is the second project featured in the AJ in as many days with a section of external wall that appears at first sight to have been left unclad - but whereas Annabelle Tugby's house design has clearly been sensibly detailed, Fielden Fowles' large area of seemingly exposed timber stud wall clearly needs very careful design if the risk of future maintenance headaches is to be avoided.
    Nit-picking? - think of the Dartington Primary School disaster.
