Providing the best low-technology solutions possible was also important: ventilation created by the natural stack- effect allows good air-movement and avoids stuffy teaching spaces; and low energy lighting is present throughout. As part of the project, the loft space and the roof pitches in the existing building were insulated and a new thermal envelope was created for the extension, meeting Camden Council’s sustainability criteria and exceeding building regulations requirements. The project brings into use disused and inaccessible spaces within the existing building, maximising additional learning space for the school with a minimal extension.The existing poorly insulated space was heavily insulated, creating an efficient thermal envelope for the new lab. The new extension maximises natural daylighting into the spaces with a large skylight the full width of the extension and south-facing glazed doors opening out onto the terrace. All-new light fittings to the space use low-energy LEDs. The large doors and opening high- level windows allow natural stack ventilation throughout the space. Helen Bruckdorfer, Headteacherat Toriano Primary School said: “Torriano’s conviction is that creativity, expressed here as the A for Arts, is as integral to learning as the other STEM subjects, and the new lab has provided the perfect context for our interdisciplinary approach. The space immerses children in investigative and creative learning: a place where curious minds are nurtured and where children can observe, code, grow and enquire. All children have access to their multi-purpose space, and thanks to business partnerships and cultural collaborations, we all enjoy ‘working scientifically’ in this inspiring lab.”
