Shaftesbury Primary School Reception Block
Location Forest Gate, Newham
Client London Borough of Newham
Contractor Kind & Co.
In order to address deficiencies identified in the school's OFSTED report, IID were commissioned to design an infill between the existing Nursery and Victorian Board School, providing new reception classrooms with external spaces, hall and related service facilities.
The hall projects over the reception play area as a Kalwall-clad 'light box', serving as an assembly, dining and sports space projecting the children's colourful artwork to the street.
