Project Name: Channing Junior School
Location: Highgate, North London
Client: Prime Meridian
Products Used: Bespoke Cor-Ten Inspira planter/bench, Greengate Seating
Bailey Streetscene transforms Channing Junior School entrance with bespoke seating and planter elements.
Located in the picturesque neighbourhood of Highgate, North London. The project aimed to create a welcoming and functional seating area at the school's entrance to accommodate parents and guardians during pick-up times.
The client sought an aesthetically pleasing and durable outdoor seating solution that would seamlessly integrate with the school's surroundings. The focus was on providing a comfortable space for parents and guardians to wait while ensuring the design reflected the school's commitment to quality and excellence.
The seating and planters are constructed of Cor-Ten steel, a naturally weathering steel that will gradually develop a rust-like patina after to exposure to the elements, creating a distinctive and attractive reddish-brown surface. This natural rusting process not only adds visual appeal but also improves the steel's corrosion resistance.
The oval-shaped planter not only added a touch of uniqueness to the entrance but also served as a functional divider, improving the flow and usability of the space. The integrated hardwood seating provided inviting and comfortable seating for parents and guardians.
The introduction of Bailey Streetscene’s tailored solutions and products has had a positive impact on the overall environment, successfully creating a communal space that fosters a sense of community and engagement among parents.
Channing Junior School is an independent day school with an established and rich history, earning a stellar reputation for academic excellence. With a dedicated faculty and supportive community, it continues to provide an outstanding educational experience for pupils aged four to twelve, including the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
