Public Buildings


Intuition special school in Ealing, west London.

Intuition school provides education for children with special educational needs. The current school purchased an existing industrial building for refurbishment with the idea to have new accommodation added above. Lifted above the existing Victorian building, the prefabricated pod provides teaching space, a rooftop recreational space and covers the internal atrium below.
The reflective stainless steel cladding provides a rain screen and is designed to camouflage the pod by reflecting the surrounding sky. The folds are angled to avoid sunlight reflecting into neighbouring windows. The air circulation behind the rain screen naturally cools the building, while hiding the natural ventilation intakes.
