Award-winning Kensington school opens its doors to the public

Award-winning Kensington school opens its doors to the public

Marlborough Primary School, an architectural award-winning school in London’s Chelsea run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, was opened to the public show for the first time at the world’s biggest architectural festival, Open House, which took place at the end of September.

The new school, which was designed by Dixon Jones and built by Kier, has won two of the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) awards for transforming an urban site into a series of cascading roof terraces centred around day-lit green areas and external play space. Judges praised it for being “a place of learning that is readable, fresh and distinctive…that will encourage pupils to play, learn and achieve”.

Head teacher Sarah Howell said: “We’re thrilled to be part of Open House for the first ever time. We love this school and so this weekend we can share it with our neighbours, as well as architectural lovers from all over.”

The Council’s Lead Member for Families, Children and Schools, Cllr Emma Will, said: “The transformation of this site is remarkable. In contrast to the Victorian school, which was behind foreboding brick boundary walls, the new building engages with the public realm with a welcoming entrance and is being used by many different community groups.”
