Dog Kennel Primary School in East Dulwich is now complete. We demolished and removed the old building, undertook extensive ground works, including ground reduction, built an 80 metre retaining wall, and created new drainage and duct work.

We have constructed large amphitheatre steps linking the existing nursery playground to the new facility. There is a large canopy spanning the front elevation of the new building and the adjacent building. It has been designed to highlight the aesthetic qualities of the finished classroom building with black render combined with thermowood cladding external finish.

Commenting on this project AVDanzer Ltd’s Dan Holloway said: “The Dog Kennel project had some challenges as access to the site was tricky and the school specified an unusual freestanding canopy which needed a creative solution. This, combined with the on-going design changes proved a challenge but we worked hard to resolve the difficulties and it’s great to see this lovely looking building ready to go.”
