Belham Primary School, London, 2021, Haverstock Architects
Architectural photography of Belham Primary School.
The design to refurbish an existing Grade II Listed London Board School was completed by London-based Haverstock Architects. The scheme adds a new three-storey extension (a perforated Cor-Ten box on a brick plinth) and included essential restoration work to the listed building, preserving the character of the building and area, while updating the school to satisfy contemporary requirements. The architects had to contend with complex restraints, including party wall requirements, overlooking and rights of light, balancing the requirements for conservation with those of development and sustainable design.
Photography completed over one day. (All images copyright Simon Kennedy, London Architectural Photographer)
