BOOM Collective wins Kings Cross School Competition

May, 2017

BOOM Collective, as part of a Curl La Tourelle Head Architecture led design team, have won a competition to design a new ‘Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics’ (STEM) facility at Argyle Primary School, located in the Bloomsbury Conservation area.

Argyle Primary School is a two-form entry community primary school, teaching in the region of 420 children from the ages of three to 11.

Improving STEM facilities will help to deliver the Camden Plan which aims to make Camden a place where everyone has a chance to succeed and a place that works for all. The project will look at utilising the existing unused first floor of the school annexe to provide a STEM classroom.

BOOM Collective will be working closely with the client and the design team to help realise the project’s objectives and ensure a comfortable environment, where natural ventilation and daylight aids learning. Boom Collective will be adopting a fabric first approach to the development of environmental engineering solutions to provide best value for the School and Camden.
