St Lukes Primary School

Brighton, East Sussex

St Lukes Primary School is an imposing grade II listed Victorian building. Evolution have undertaken projects including converting the existing hall balcony into a staffroom, changing windows into patio doors, enlarging classrooms and a new school club building. All projects have presented challenges in respect of obtaining approvals due to its Listed status.

The new club building provides extended services for breakfast, lunch, after school, holiday clubs and parent and toddler groups. The new building follows the footprint of an existing external shelter, the listed columns and rear wall of which had to be retained and included in the new design. The new building is designed as a colourful contrast to the red brick Victorian building, which reflects its use as a play facility for young children. The existing boundary wall is retained and utilised as new external walls, with the existing cast iron columns and beams retained as features in front of the new south and west facades. The building comprises a multi-functional play space with associated kitchen and toilet facilities, hot water and heating being provided by an air source heat pump.
