RIBA London Award for Building in an Historic Context

Hallfield School, London | Caruso St John Architects

This project is an extension to a much-loved modernist icon, grade 2 star listed and one of Denys Lasdun's earliest works. 

We have placed each building as close to its neighbour as possible, so that the spaces between have shape and intimacy, as is the case with Lasdun's composition. The new buildings appear to have joined the group, carefully closing off views from the centre of the site as if they are the last pieces of a complicated jigsaw.
