• Isleworth & Syon School Humanities Wing

Extensive interior and façade refurbishment of the humanities wing to improve the quality of teaching space, environmental conditions, and department identity.

Working in close collaboration with the school, we led the process from brief development to delivery on site. A key goal in the refurbishment was to improve environmental conditions in the classrooms, including lack of daylight, poor air quality and chronic overheating.

The scope of work covered both the internal areas and the external facades, giving the building an exciting new lease of life while remaining cost-effective and sustainable in the re-use of an existing building. The block comprises 12 classrooms on two floors as well as social spaces and a toilet block.

The school’s location under the Heathrow flight path makes opening windows and passive ventilation very challenging. In partnership with Novarama, we designed a mechanical system with heat recovery which has already proven to dramatically improve the environmental conditions. New lighting is movement and light sensitive to keep energy costs to a minimum.
