On a very tight site in Tooting, this former Victorian school building is being converted into 9 new residential units for private rental. The project started on site in February 2017 and is expected to be completed later in the year.
The old school building provides space for 5 duplex apartments, whilst a new extension building to the rear provides an additional 4 apartments. A single-storey extension to the front has been demolished creating a new entrance courtyard enclosed by a new timber slatted facade. The timber slats are repeated between the old and new buildings, separating the brickwork of the old and the new. The slope of the site has been respected in the gentle terracing of the landscaping.
