Hatcham Temple Grove Free School
Re-Format was commissioned to review and redesign a new 420 place primary school on a tight urban site in the sensitive Telegraph Hill Conservation Area within Lewisham in London. Re-Format instigated a detailed contextual analysis of the site and carefully crafted the scheme into an existing school campus for the Haberdasher’s Askes charity.
Due to a very urgent need for additional school places within the region and to facilitate a rapid construction process an ‘off site’ modular construction system was carefully selected.
“The Panel were very encouraged that the School has reacted positively to the previous commentary (by commissioning new designers and) by pursuing a fresh architectural approach and new set of designs. The architects and the School have clearly worked quickly to progress the proposals to their current stage of development.”
— Keith Williams, Chairman of the Lewisham Design Review Panel
