Tufnell Park Primary School was completed in collaboration with Morgan Sindall and London Borough of Islington, as part of an ambitious council led project to rebuild and expand the existing school, from the current 1.5 FE to a 3 FE with a 72 place nursery and 2 year old provision. The project was extremely complex due to the site constraints and the phasing strategy of phased demolition and construction, to keep the existing school in operation throughout the works. The new building supports the school’s vision for learning by providing the best learning experience for the whole school community. Tufnell Park is a fully modular building and we challenge anyone to guess that it is in fact a volumetric modular building. The site is set within a conservation area and as such, there was a strong desire for design quality that is appropriate for the context. Therefore, whilst it is a fully modular building, the external skin is a traditional masonry construction.
