RIBA Awards 2006 - Hallfield School, Westminster
This exciting £1.7M project for Westminster City Council comprised the construction of two architecturally unique classroom blocks, on the east and west sides of Hallfield Junior School, West London.
The Grade II star listed school was originally designed by Drake and Lasdun as part of the Hallfield Estate, master-planned by Berthold Lebetkin in the late 1940s.
The square lines of the building and clever use of aluminium windows, coloured render and flat roofs led to a subtle re-interpretation of the school and its subsequent RIBA Award in 2006.
RIBA President Jack Pringle said: “I never realised until I became RIBA President and got involved in some of the judging just how hard it is to win an award from the RIBA. A winner has to clear more hurdles than a victorious Grand National horse. Every one of these winners is a champion.”
