Staffroom expansion and refurbishment, St Elizabeth RC primary School, Bethnal Green, London

One of the many projects undertaken over the past ten years by SCABAL in this lovely school, this conversion of a rundown staff room connects to a disused Caretakers House and provides refreshed facilities for working, resting and dining for the school staff.

Funded through the Diocese of Westminster by an LCVAP grant for condition works, the existing cellular rooms of the house are opened up to form one interconnecting space where staff can recharge, relax and prepare for lessons away from the dominant children-filled parts of the school. Being placed in the meeting point of school and home, it’s both work-like and domestic in feel.
