Montpelier Community Nursery in London

The school takes the form of a pavilion opening on to a part-sheltered play area with a park beyond.

The selection of materials is a key part of the scheme’s success. The black stained Siberian larch sits inconspicuously in the trees and contrasts with the white-washed internal woodwork.

All the details are well controlled, from exposed conduits to the selection of nursery furniture and material finishes. Simple decisions made for an all-encompassing education experience: thoughtful pushchair stores and recessed entrances takes some of the madness out of drop-off and pick-up times; the door on to the park allows quiet surveillance; and there is a seamless link to the outer play area and garden.
