Platanos College, Lambeth, SW9 London, UK

Stockwell Park High School in the London Borough of Lambeth was the first BSF school to receive a CABE ‘Excellent’ rating.

The scheme visually breaks down the boundaries between the internal and external environments through its use of full-height glass. The main circulation spine cuts through the ‘ribbon’ form of the plan, linking the main cluster groups with a Business & Enterprise Unit, providing a clear and direct route through the building.

The building has been designed with a minimum of three storeys to ensure that the site is not taken up by the building footprint, and a large amount of external play area is retained.
