ClarkeHopkinsClarke worked with Chelsea Primary School to refurbish the first floor of the historic school building. The redevelopment has transformed four existing cellular classrooms and ancillary spaces into a combined learning environment for senior students.

The new learning environment features varied spaces for teaching and learning including a discussion corner with tiered seating for focused learning, group work and quiet reading, a targeted teaching zone for intensive focused small group learning, and joinery designed to raise students to window level to allow a greater connection with the outside environment.
