fabrik scheme wins RIBA award
22 May 2015
St Thomas the Apostle College has won a ‘RIBA Regional Award 2015 – London’ for Exceptional Value for Money.
Working for Balfour Beatty construction with 4futures and London Borough of Southwark, fabrik supported Allies and Morrison Architects on the design proposals for the new school situated in Peckham. This is one of six schools in which the external surroundings were designed by fabrik as part of the Southwark Schools for the Future programme.
Working closely with the school, the landscape was designed to integrate cohesive design principles which provide dynamic and flexible learning environments including a central cloister space, enveloped by exterior circulation, at the heart of the school. The landscape design has aided the concentration of the pupils by having direct access to the outdoors and has created a seamless flow between internal and external learning.
