Eleanor Palmer Science Lab by AY Architects
Eleanor Palmer Science Lab is one of London’s new facilities built to promote the teaching of science and technology in primary school communities. The structure is entirely made of timber designed by AY Architects, a London-based studio committed to design excellence and the delivery of quality buildings in the educational, cultural and residential sectors.
A pair of triangular roof volumes is lifted above the main space enabled with large windows which giving generous daylight, ventilation and additional height for experiments. The building is open and flood with natural light and air and the smell of wood. The overall design of this wooden science lab is clean and thought-full, and it is really good to see modern structures are built from wood for children, especially, in the neighborhood with all the brick walls and buildings.
