John Perryn Primary School

Project Details

This new two-form entry primary school was one of the first Pathfinder projects for the DfES Primary Capital Programme, required to meet high educational, environmental and design targets.  Working with the school and Penoyre & Prasad architects, we worked from concept to installation to create a new school where pupils’ imagination can flourish in an environment which maximises educational benefits.

Winner: Ealing Civic Society Award, 2010

  • Protected, covered external spaces with direct adjacency to early years classrooms
