St Helen's Junior School
Location Northwood, Middlesex
Client St Helen's School
Contractor Life Build Solutions Ltd
IID’s brief was to design an inspirational and innovative new Junior School which is integrated with the landscape and enhances the character of the site.
The new building is part single and part two storey with the landscape taken up and over the roof of the single storey elements. This achieves a balance of building volume and form which minimises the adverse visual impact on the open landscape in this area of the site. The extended 'fingers' create open courtyards connecting the building into the broader landscape and defining the Junior domain.
Video footage of the school site which includes the front entrance and Junior School can be found on the school's Vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/190254737
