Kingsgate Primary Lower School, London, by Maccreanor Lavington Architects (phs: Tim Crocker)
“Part of a mixed-use masterplan for this former industrial estate, the primary school demonstrates a strong collaboration between architect and client. The grand assembly hall is impressive and reminiscent of the scale of a Victorian school hall with its huge volume and pitched roof. Kingsgate makes successful use of the site, within a carefully considered masterplan that addressed the adjacent railway line and benefits from a southern aspect, creating a ‘connected’ public space. A laudable procurement of the school design, where one senses the children attending this school are off to an exceptional start in education.”

“Every millimetre of space on the small, rectangular site has been carefully designed so it works hard and is used effectively. The workstations alone are an exquisite crafted invention for a stand-sit adjustable desks, and are easy of use. The facade inspires and delights passers-by, opening up the profession of architecture to a wider audience. Absolutely every aspect of this office design has been thought about, exquisitely crafted and detailed, providing delight on a daily basis to those who see it.”
