A feasibility study for Camden School for Girls exploring ways to achieve new facilities and improvements to their site while also keeping the school in operation. This included new Music accommodation, enlarged Sixth Form, new Technology Classrooms and removal of temporary classrooms sitting prominently in the centre of the site.
The site is not large enough to develop a single new building so an approach of smaller interventions, making best use of the existing buildings and the spaces between was adopted, phased to match the availability of funding.
GLA devised options to help prioritise and sequence development to suit the school’s funding and to minimise disruption. Central to the plan is a new Library and Resources building at the front of the school, replacing temporary buildings. This new focal point would be a building that all members of the school would use, offering a social dimension with a school ‘cafe’ on the ground floor connecting with the surrounding landscape.
