    Borough Primary School

    Vertical school behind existing façade maximises staggered roof top play space

    Located on Borough High Street, within the St George The Martyr Conservation Area, the proposal seeks to retain the existing building facade behind which will be a new 2FE primary school arranged over 7 floors including a basement.

    To maximise the site potential the sports facilities have been located within the basement freeing up the floors above for classrooms and play area. The youngest students are located at ground level, with year groups progressing vertically.

    Play space is integral to the scheme with the building’s roofs utilised for covered play terraces on the 3rd, 5th and 6th floors. A nearby public park also provides potential for limited school use.
