This project creates a new learning hub at Sarah Bonnell School in Stratford, Newham, by extending the existing library space to provide a range of learning and teaching resources and environments and a new conference and training space at the heart of the school.
The conference room extends out from the courtyard eastern external wall and projects into the new double-height space of the new learning hub.
A gallery runs around the first floor perimeter providing additional learning spaces and views over the double height space.
The structure consists of glulam columns and cross laminated timber (CLT) floors. The last two images shown here are models made by SBS students as part of a process of consultation which asked what the new facility should be like.
