A closer look at a model produced for our project to refurbish and extend the Grade II Listed Bromley Hall School building in London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
The new facilities are to meet the much needed demand for primary pupil places across the Borough. The proposals will see the School become a 420 pupil Primary School with Nursery Facilities.
This is an extremely interesting building of the late 1960s, and was one of the first purpose built schools in the country for children with special needs. It was widely published in the architectural press and was met with positive acclaim.
“This was a really interesting model to do because of the fantastic roof and lightwell structures. It was important to capture this in the model and I think we did this well. The existing school block which is to be refurbished is made from oak to differentiate it from the surrounding context which is made from lime. The new build is a sprayed Perspex and reflects the rooflight structures of the original school – with a roof that lifts off to show the interior.” James Parkinson, Model Maker.
