The school in Camden, north London comprises a new-build three storey building and the conversion and integration of a Grade II listed building at 1 Hawley Road. The single-form entry school accommodates 236 children from nursery to year 6, with classrooms arranged around an intimate central courtyard, each with access to year group-specific learning terraces distributed across the terraced rooftops.
Westcoast Windows were pleased to work with main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey and AHMM architects on this project, which included the supply of our Westcoast Windows Design system, comprising of 550m2 of windows and doors.
As you can see from the imagery, the external finish was our RAL Amber coating, which gives the impression of a bronze anodising. The internal courtyard windows were fitted into a timber glulam framework.
For single storey buildings or high level balcony locations where cleaning can be carried out from within the building and reglazing is to be carried out externally.
The window has a side hung open out action, the sash being hung on a pair of concealed friction hinges. An opening angle of 90° can be achieved to enable external surfaces to be cleaned from within the building (max safe reach 850mm).
Concealed multipoint espagnolette locking provides superior closing tightness for weatherproofing and acoustic attenuation and offers a secure night ventilation position.
