Independent Primary School, North London

Catholic Primary School
St John's Wood, London
Architect and Lead Consultant

Paul Murphy Architects were appointed through an invited tender to prepare designs for the reconfiguration and extension of this independent Catholic school, to create a co-educational, two form entry school, on a tight urban site just north of Regent’s Park.

Our proposals involve a two-phase approach which creates a new entrance, relocates the kitchen and servery to create a new office area; the main body of work reconfigures and extends the early years accommodation at ground floor level with four new classrooms above.

Using the analogy of a forest, we are seeking to use a cross laminated timber structure and screen-printed images of trees on glazing and timber cladding to unify the new interventions.
