Fitzjohn’s Primary School, Camden

  • Learning
  • London Borough of Camden
  • £2m

The phased restoration and transformation of a Grade II listed Victorian school was achieved by discovering the existing hall, building new classrooms around a play space and creating a new nursery in an existing performance space.

The hall has been returned to its original use by removing partitions and restoring the glorious timber framing.

New timber-clad classrooms hug the site boundaries, linked to existing buildings by a canopy unifying the playground and its mature trees.
