Surrey Square School, Early Years Centre




earlearchitects

Client: Surrey Square School Location: Southwark, London Project Value: ÂŁ1.1m Date: Completed May 2016 This project created a dedicated area for 0-5 year olds within an existing primary and junior school. A new building features a creche for children aged 0-3 as well as a separate classroom children aged 3-5. Two classrooms within the existing school building were refurbished and given new external doors to open into an external play area, which links all the spaces together. The new building was conceived as a peaceful and inspiring learning environment, filled with natural light from the extensive glazing at high level. The building was a fast-track, light-weight, low carbon glue-laminated (glulam) and structural insulated panel system (SIPs). The entire outer shell and structural frame of the building was manufactured offsite and transported by 5 lorries from Hereford. Once on site it was craned into position and fully assembled in 2 weeks and 1 day. The FSC certified timber shell was then clad on the outside with Western Red Cedar shingles and fit-out of the internal spaces commenced concurrently.

Surrey Square School, Dining Room Pavilion




earlearchitects

Client: Surrey Square School Location: Southwark, London Project Value: £912,000 Date: Completed June 2010 This exciting new addition to Surrey Square School’s playground serves as a new dining facility and provides much needed additional floor space for the infant and junior school. Critically, the building does not reduce the external play area on this tight urban site by providing an accessible landscape over its concrete dome roof. Skylights puncture the dome and bring natural light down into the dining room while a stainless steel slide invites the pupils to play. Because of the unique funding stream via a special purpose vehicle, the building had to navigate the planning system, be detailed designed, tendered and constructed in under 9 months. The building is also available to the wider community for activities and events and this has ������������������ been taken up with enthusiasm by neighbours on the Aylesbury Estate after the building was officially opened in late June 2010 by Master Chef Judge and TV presenter, Greg Wallace, himself a local Bermondsey pupil in his youth.

Surrey Square School, Interior Works

Client: Surrey Square School Location: Southwark, London Project Value: ÂŁ170,000 Date: Completed September 2010

Following completion of the new dining building, Surrey Square School asked us to reconfigure areas of the interior of the existing school building. A new canopy and sign welcomes visitors to a new entrance and reception space, which greatly improves circulation and provides the school with a dedicated visitor waiting area. On the ground floor we have reorganised internal spaces to provide a meeting room, office and new classroom. A new disabled toilet and baby changing room has also been created to better serve the schools users. On the first floor, an old redundant kitchen was removed to form a new staff room. The project, along with necessary planning permission and building regulations approval, successfully met fixed deadlines in order for work to take place over the summer holidays to avoid disruption to the staff and pupils.

Tolworth Court Sports Pavilion




earlearchitects

Client: Surrey Square School Location: Southwark, London Project Value: £1.1m Date: Completed May 2016 This new sports pavilion is located at Kingston University’s 22 hectare sports ground, Tolworth Court, and replaces a smaller facility that was no longer able to meet the demands of the university and local community. Sited within Metropolitan Open Land the steel frame skeleton is wrapped in cedar cladding while a feature lift shaft tower is covered with a translucent Kalwall skin. Inside, 16 changing rooms serve football, rugby, hockey, cricket and tennis players as well as match officials and wheelchair users. The first floor caters for functions and events with a large social space featuring an external terrace that enjoys views over the playing fields. The environmental impact of the building has been reduced thanks to a ground source heat pump providing 50% of the building heat load and solar thermal panels that pre-warm water for the showers.

There are four 18-person changing rooms along with a wheelchair accessible shower room, first aid room, kitchen and store. The pavilion was constructed on a modest budget using a five-bay pre-fabricated building system and clad in vertical cedar boards with a gull-wing roof to suit the green field site. Springhill Recreation Ground features tennis courts, football and rugby pitches. It forms part of the Lea Valley Park - London’s largest green space.

The plans included a pavilion in phase 1 with new changing facilities, catering and social areas to compliment 6 new indoor tennis courts and 12 squash courts. Subsequent phases included a 50 metre indoor swimming pool, a climbing centre as well as an 8 court and a 4 court multi purpose sports hall with dance/ activity hall and fitness centre.

Client: Crown Golf Location: Frimley, Surrey Project Value: £5.4m Date: Ongoing

Pine Ridge is an existing pay-andplay golf course with a 3,000sqm clubhouse. Our client, Crown Golf, sought to broaden its operation by upgrading and enlarging the building to offer country club facilities which would boast a gym, swimming pool, spa treatments and outdoor tennis as well as golf membership. Our proposals include the demolition of approximately half of the existing building, the construction of a new wing and remodelling of the retained part of the existing building. The £5.4m works will bring a clean, sophisticated look to the dark and oppressive existing building. The building’s use would normally be limited to urban areas, in accordance with national planning policy (PPS7). However, we were able to secure planning permission in this rural setting with a robust and detailed planning application.

Client: Manor Gardens Welfare Trust Location: Islington, London Project Value: £100,000 Date: Completion due in 2020 Manor Gardens Centre instructed Earle Architects to redesign the current ground floor office area in Islington. Working closely with the staff to envisage a new proposal for the space we have designed a more welcoming, bright central reception area for the vital services they provide to the local community. Using our PIE design guide, we created a new hub for the centre including a variety of seating areas, a workspace and a kitchen for the community to use. We also designed a private ‘one to one’ room for staff and service users to use alike. For the staff we have designed a new private reception area with an office/storage space to house any relevant equipment.

We are using warm, bright colours throughout and implementing biophilic design principles with the inclusion of planting shelfs around the perimeter of the reception area to make the space feel relaxing and welcoming. Natural materials such as wood will be used to construct the new design elements to further implement the design principles of the proposal.

This project will reconfigure an underused basement space within an existing building to create a ‘hub’ for a homelessness service called No Second Night Out. The Hub will provide a cafe area, assessment rooms, toilets and showers for those who find themselves in need of the project’s services. Staff offices and a staff room will also be created. %HOIDVWVLQN

The design seeks to maximise natural daylight in the basement space by retaining a double height void and installing a glass walkway to a private outdoor courtyard. The cafe lounge is the main space in the hub, which encourages interaction and conversation in an informal and relaxed setting. The use of timber softens the interior to avoid an institutional feel.

The centres will provide 16 clienteles at any one time access to a variety of face to face services provided by 7 parttime Depaul staff. 1

3D Proposed Rev

Throughout our design process we have used our research on ‘PIE’ (Psychologically Informed Environments) to inform and develop concepts on privacy, security, social inter connectivity and connection to nature and natural light. We focused on avoiding forms of institutional architecture that our clients are likely to have negative past experiences of.

The form has been derived from the pangolin mammal in a defensive mode. Each interlocking node of the building represents one of the textured scales. The internal courtyard becomes a protected space, a place for reflection and interaction with nature.

Client: DePaul Location: Manchester Project Value: TBC Date: Ongoing The proposed Garden Studios have been exploring placing 1 bedroom, 1 person units to the rear of an existing Depaul Safestop hostel on Palantine Road, Manchester. We have completed several massing and form exercises to ascertain, in liaison with the council, an appropriate and considerate number of units. Each Garden Studio will include their own bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom and laundrette. The Garden Studios have been designed using our P.I.E approach. We purposefully moved away from the institutional, high yield unit model to a higher quality design that considers privacy and social interconnectedness as paramount to proposed outcome. The materiality of the studios will reflect the typical red brick terrace houses with pitched slate roofs found in the area. All matures trees will be retained and additional semi mature trees will be planted as part of works to create a newly landscaped garden.

Client: St Mungos Location: Hackney, London Project Value: £460,000 Date: Completed June 2018

This project re configures an underused basement space within an existing building to create a ‘hub’ for a homelessness service called No Second Night Out. No Second Night Out is a project by St Mungo’s aimed at ensuring those who find themselves sleeping rough in central London for the first time need not spend a second night on the streets. The Hub provides a cafe area, assessment rooms, toilets and showers for those who find themselves in need of the project’s services. Staff offices and a staff room have also been created. The design seeks to maximise natural daylight in the basement space by retaining a double height void and installing a glass walkway to a private outdoor courtyard.

2 Hilldrop Road is a grade II listed converted church built in 1854. In 1990, the interior of the church was altered for use as a registered care home to provide 29no. bedsit units, with shared bathroom and catering facilities, for older male residents with a history of homelessness and alcohol dependence. St Mungo’s Broadway has identified a need to upgrade the current accommodation to provide ensuite facilities to each bedroom and refurbish the interiors throughout. An application for listed building consent was lodged with Islington in December 2015.

Client: St Mungo’s Location: Clapham, London Project Value: £3.0m Date: Ongoing

113-117 Cedars Road is part of a series of grade II listed 19th Century villas and is laid out over three storeys plus a basement level. The building is currently a homeless Hostel, operated by St Mungo’s and providing 120 beds. Earle Architects won an invited competition in 2011 to produce designs to transform the existing bedrooms to self contained living units. Each self contained unit is to contain a living space with bed, desk/eating space, kitchenette and bathroom. The three properties are currently linked with a basement and ground floor corridor. These internal links will be removed so that each of the properties can function independently and so habitable floor may be maximised. In 2012, Earle Architects was asked by St Mungo’s to reconfigure and repair the front boundary wall. The proposal seeks to reinstate the historic rhythm of openings on to Cedars Road and the historic materials. The listed building and planning consent was granted in June 2012.

Client: Thames Reach Location: Islington, London Project Value: £1.3m Date: Completed February 2018 The Robertson Street Hostel is an existing building offering shelter to 42 homeless men with a history of drug and alcohol abuse. The brief from our client, Thames Reach, was to reconfigure each of the bedrooms to provide en-suite bathrooms and to refurbish the building throughout. Our design minimises the extent of structural work, to reduce costs, and employs the use of robust but cost effective materials. The existing heating and hot and cold water systems are to be entirely renewed to provide a much more efficient system and reduce the building’s running costs. The construction work is being delivered in two phases, with half of the building still in occupation at any one time.

earlearchitects

Client: Thames Reach Location: Waterloo, London Project Value: ÂŁ714,000 Date: Completed 2012

This grade II Listed homeless hostel building has been reconfigured at ground and lower ground floor level and extensively refurbished to provide a new reception, staff office spaces, medic room, kitchen, dining room and group therapy room. The underlying principle of the design was to open up existing small cellular rooms into open, inviting, naturally lit and naturally ventilated spaces to improve the wellbeing of the 19 service users and staff. The key space in the building is a new dining and kitchen area that make use of a 1990s extension. This poorly conceived addition blocked natural light to part of the original building and was poorly connected to its host - and as a result was underused. Our designs enlarged a window opening in the original house to create a more meaningful connection between new and old - transforming two poor quality rooms into one large space which is bathed in natural daylight and links to the garden area. It is envisaged that herbs and vegetables will be grown in new planter beds and used in the preparation of food in the new kitchen, which is one a part of a programme of personal development the hostel service users can benefit from. As well as the extensive works at ground and lower ground floor level, a refurbishment of the bedrooms and bathrooms on floors 1 to 3 was also undertaken as well as a total renewal of the building’s heating and domestic hot and cold water systems. Earle Architects also designed bespoke joinery pieces including the staff desks, computer work stations, storage solutions, kitchen units and radiator covers to provide a common language through the various spaces.

Hoxton square is a vibrant and busy garden in East London bordered by bars, restaurants, offices, apartments, a school and an art gallery. A wide spectrum of people enjoy using the space for an equally wide variety of activities, which had taken its toll on the presentation of the garden. Earle Architects were appointed, following success in a competitive bid, to head a team of designers to rejuvenate the square and oversee works which took place over an ambitious 8 week period. We delivered new hard surface treatments, additional litter bins, extra seating, restoration works to the central fountain (dating from 1901), a new power supply to allow the square to play host to special events and, working with Onefield landscape designers, a new soft landscaping design.
