The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) Tower at Wimbledon High School provides new art, design technology, maths and science learning spaces with some important features for collaboration and flexibility. The top floor of the STEAM Tower has been designed for the art department with views out over Wimbledon and north light.
The buildings make learning visible within the confines of the site and connect the departments together, encouraging a cross curricular-curricular approach. Rooms which allow a variety of uses with flexible furniture and IT is vital to the school’s teaching methodology.
Once the DT department moved into their new building, space was made for a deep retrofit of their previous home to create open dining rooms and kitchen within the Hastings Building.
