Composite windows for Harrow Arts Centre education facility


Westcoast design and manufacture high performance Swedish aluminium timber composite windows – the ideal glazing solution for high specification commercial developments.

Westcoast are pleased to be supplying the composite windows and doors for the development of a new teaching building at Harrow Arts Centre.

The new building creates four large teaching and community use rooms and will replace several dilapidated temporary classrooms dotted around the campus, and creates an invaluable revenue stream for the HAC.

Chris Dyson Architects have designed the building’s L-shaped plan and corrugated corten cladding to reflect the agricultural nature of the east end of the HAC campus, which was once a farm for a rural boarding school. A saw-tooth roof provides north light to all of the studios and the first floor teaching room. The ground floor teaching rooms open out onto a courtyard, allowing teaching to take place outdoors in good weather.
