In through the outdoor

School Library | Architect for Hackney | Clissold Road, Stoke Newington

As part of the overall design feasibility proposals for the improvement of Betty Layward school; the next issue is external circulation. The morning drop is made difficult as the school is accessed between two townhouses. The width is restricted with all the parents and children bottlenecking at this entrance each morning. Alternative strategies are being implemented and a large loop around the perimeter of the school has provided some relief. It does however involve entering the school through the car park and exiting through the front gate. The circular route does however alleviate that feeling of swimming against the tide of parents as you try to leave the school.
