Haute Vallée School
Completion Date 1998
Contract Value £14m
Client States of Jersey
This 750-pupil secondary school with community facilities was commissioned by The States of Jersey following an open design competition. The design brings together a number of low energy technologies into a simple and yet innovative configuration.
The scheme combines the use of wind towers, thermal mass, passive solar heating, external shading and good daylighting, all controlled electronically to provide a well balanced ecological environment.
Haute Vallée was awarded a 1999 RIBA Award for Architecture.
