A new two form entry primary school with parent centre replacing an existing out dated facility. Pushing new boundaries in student participation, the new Berger Primary built on the success of our earlier Larmenier Primary School, with an outstanding sustainable agenda and a ‘no boundaries’ approach to a total inside/outside learning environment: a green educational oasis at the heart of its community.
A colourful building language working hand in hand with a highly effective daylighting strategy resulted in an upbeat inspirational learning environment. The extensive use of off-site pre-fabricated solid laminated timber panels reduced construction disturbance to the existing operational school and was an important contributor to achieving the BREEAM Excellent rating.
Studio E Architects were fantastic at listening to our ideas and recognised the contribution we could make. The design engagement with staff and pupils was brilliant and we really felt part of the team. A very complex process was made simple. We are really proud of our new and highly sustainable school.
