Fulham Prep School is a successful private school for 4 to 13 year olds. Founded in September 1996 by Mrs Jane Emmett the current head. We were appointed as the school’s Architects for the new Multipurpose hall in April 2007.
The school occupies beautiful purpose-built Victorian school buildings fronting onto Fulham High Street in London SW6, previously occupied by a Church of England Primary School.
The school required additional space for a multipurpose hall to be used mainly for indoor sports activities, as well as changing facilities and a new medical inspection room. The proposed scheme provides a clearly defined entrance to the school building under a glazed walkway, plus defined routes to the playgrounds and sports areas.
The curved roofs over both buildings provide more height internally, resulting in a better internal environment, and also a pleasing external form.
The school is taking the opportunity of making the buildings fully sustainable and creating education opportunities in sustainable construction for its pupils. The buildings are constructed using a prefabricated solid timber panel system. Wood fibre insulation boards are applied to the outside of the solid timber structure. A sedum green roof forms the roof of both the buildings.
