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.
