Oasis AcademyEdit profile
John McAslan + Partners was appointed to design a new building for Oasis Academy - a specialist Maths, ICT and Music school - on a former industrial site in Enfield.
Completed in 2012, the ambitious scheme will deliver a vibrant new learning campus for the Academy’s primary secondary and sixth-form students. It will also play a pivotal role in a local regeneration plan for the Borough.
JMP’s design is driven by the Academy’s specialist teaching model which is organised around learning zones. At the heart of the building is a central agora, providing an informal teaching area for learning. This is complemented by a series of 9 metre wide, open plan learning clusters, which allow for increased flexibility.
Sustainable features include green roofs, which will provide biodiversity and educational learning, and the use of photovoltaic panels which will provide 20% of the completed Academy’s energy.
