Golden Lane Campus, London


The scheme brought together the accommodation for a relocated primary school, the Richard Cloudesley School for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities, along with a nursery


Client: London Borough of Islington

Architects: Nicholas Hare Architects LLP


The site is located between the Barbican and Fortune Park.  This award-winning design creates a new internal street linking Golden Lane with Whitecross Street Market.  The campus opens directly into the safe landscape of Fortune Park.

Our landscape design overcame the technical constraints of being located on the roof and still deliver a full range of sports, play and exciting spaces for children. Trees providing important shade are located in mounds and tables double up to offer focal points and learning zones around the roofscape.
