On Sunday 12th September 2021, 1-5pm, Eleanor Palmer Primary School Science Lab will open to the public as part of Open House. The design of the Lab is an example of AY Architects’ philosophy of a holistic approach to passive environmental design and designing for well-being for schools. It illustrates how architecture can help to reduce the reliance on energy-consuming equipment. As an integrated passive design approach, the servicing of the building is kept very simple and environmental control is provided within the building fabric, by the use of façade and roof openings and the use of natural light and air. The objective is to create a healthy and comfortable environment, easy to control, where environmental factors generate a meaningful part of the architecture.
