Award winning school puts Senior’s Hybrid solutions to the test

The future is looking bright for the pupils of Lady Eleanor Holles school thanks to a modern school building that maximises the use of natural light through the use Senior Architectural Systems’ innovative range of Hybrid windows and curtain walling.

The independent girls’ school in Middlesex, which won the RIBA London Award 2014, was designed by Walter & Cohen Architects to achieve a BREAM rating of ‘excellent’. 

Featuring aluminum on the exterior to provide a durable and low maintenance solution and engineered timber on the interior for a natural look and feel, Senior’s Hybrid range perfectly complements the school’s use of timber design elements both inside and out.

Senior’s Hybrid series 3 curtain walling system and Hybrid series 2 frameless casement windows were installed to the main teaching block and art centre to give sweeping views across the playing fields.  The Hybrid series 2 frameless casement windows provided the attractive seamless façade that the design team desired as well as giving impressive U-values and thermal performance.

Senior worked closely with leading fabricator Soundcraft to deliver the prestigious contract.
