HKR Architects with John Pardey Architects have won a RIBA international design competition to redesign Eveline Lowe Primary School in Marlborough Grove.
HKR Architects are based in Waterloo's Wootton Street. The competition was part of the Southwark Schools for the Future programme.
Eveline Lowe Primary School is currently housed in a 1967 Grade 2 listed building and an Edwardian building on a split site on either side of Marlborough Grove.
The school – which was recently placed under special measures by Ofsted – is to be expanded and modernised by the end of 2009.
"Education has a vital role to play in building safe and sustainable neighbourhoods so we are building new and better schools for the young people of Southwark," says Cllr Caroline Pidgeon, executive member for education.
"We want Southwark to be a place where good quality education and children's services support families and communities, who choose to live, work and learn here. We want our schools to be stimulating, safe and successful learning environments. They will be there for children and young people, but they will also provide facilities for the communities they serve."
