Description:

Clapton Girls' Academy is a successful inner city secondary school with Specialist Technology status and is part of Hackney's Building Schools for the Future programme. Consisting of 40 per cent new buildings and 60 per cent refurbished buildings, the design provides an enhanced physical environment with particular respect to the historic architectural features of the elegant Edwardian buildings on the site. The design resolves overcrowding and circulation problems by successfully strengthening movement between the new and existing buildings. The use of warm and contemporary natural materials such as brick, timber and glass are sympathetic and respectful to the existing buildings.

Furthermore FFEC delivered and installed the fixed and loose furniture in the dining pavilions, ICT suites as well as refurbishing a new hall and sixth from common room.
