Faraday School


When opening Faraday School in the  busy London Docklands area, New Model  School were looking for a unique way to gain a playground space from their existing facilities.

Creating a playground on the school building’s roof alleviated the need for extra land whilst providing the children with a safe environment in which to play.

Complete with astro turf and cloud shaped windows the new playground really makes the most of its location with stunning views across the river Thames and 02 arena.
