NEW LONDON AWARDS 2020

Shortlisted in the WELLBEING PRIZE
The education-led mixed-use scheme has delivered a new high-quality primary school and nursery co-located with residential apartments. The project was delivered via a cross-funding model; the private sale of the apartments helped to fund the school, providing much-needed school spaces in Hackney. The challenge was to provide an excellent learning environment, maximising the available playspace whilst balancing the need of the residential accommodation. The building separates the uses horizontally and vertically with school and residential outdoor amenity space provided at different roof levels.

Tiger Way is an education-led mixed-use scheme, which has delivered a high-quality new primary school and nursery co-located with equally high- quality residential apartments. The mixed-use scheme enables a significant reduction in CO2 emissions by utilising an efficient shared CHP heating system and on-site photovoltaics on the roof of the residential towers to avoid overshadowing. The energy strategy on Nightingale Primary School promotes passive design features such as natural ventilation, excellent fabric efficiency and exposed thermal mass, with glazing and openable windows sized to provide good daylight levels and effective overheating control. To ensure daylight throughout, school classrooms have ‘chimney’ vents to roof levels providing natural light to the classrooms.
Tiger Way is an education-led mixed-use scheme delivering a high-quality school co-located with residential apartments. The project was delivered via a cross-funding model, with private sale apartments helping to fund the school. The challenge was to provide an excellent learning environment, maximising playspace whilst balancing the need of the residential units. The hybrid building provides school and residential uses at different roof levels. The combined footprint made more efficient use of the site without compromising. The project achieved BREEAM Outstanding at design and construction stage, it won a BREEAM Award in 2018 and was shortlisted again this year.
