At Walthamstow School for Girls the Grade II Listed building was sensitively refurbished and extended to provide new specialist accommodation for 900 pupils. New and old are connected by a multi level, glazed foyer with folding screens that allow drama and assembly spaces to be linked together, creating an exciting sequence of flexible learning spaces. The design, constructed by Bouygues, achieved BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and won a 2011 BCSE Design Award.
