Fulham Prep School is a successful private school for 4 to 13-year-olds. Founded in September 1996 by Mrs. Jane Emmett the current head. Members of E&E Team were involved in this scheme.
The school occupies beautiful purpose-built Victorian school buildings fronting onto Fulham High Street in London SW6, previously occupied by a Church of England Primary School.
The school required additional space for a multipurpose hall to be used mainly for indoor sports activities, as well as changing facilities and a new medical inspection room. The proposed scheme provides a clearly defined entrance to the school building under a glazed walkway, plus defined routes to the playgrounds and sports areas.
The curved roofs over both buildings provide more height internally, resulting in a better internal environment, and also a pleasing external form.
The school is taking the opportunity of making the buildings fully sustainable and creating educational opportunities in sustainable construction for its pupils. The buildings are constructed using a prefabricated solid timber panel system. Wood fiber insulation boards are applied to the outside of the solid timber structure. A sedum green roof forms the roof of both buildings.
