Kensington Aldridge Academy
Feasibility proposals to accompany a Contractor bid for the design and construction of 5 'pods' for small supported starter businesses to be located within the entrance area of the new Kensington Aldridge Academy School, London. Four of the pods provide office space with store, each accommodating two fledgling entrepreneurships in distinctive shaped units. The fifth and largest unit matches the others in visual syle but is used for training, meetings and hot desking.
We proposed a series of coloured pods clad with vertical timber slats arranged 'end on' on the pod walls. The appearance of the units changes depending on the viewpoint, creating a dynamic view both from inside the school and from the adjacent street.
