Friend and Company converted a grade II listed Victorian School into new housing apartments that included the addition of a low maintenance extension prefabricated from Cor-Ten (weathering steel) that was both structure and hermetically sealed waterproof envelope profiled external ‘photobolic shelf’ used to passively attenuate the air temperature within the converted Studios and bounce reflected light deeper into the main living space.


Use of weathering steel for new external walls and roof ensures low maintenance and was also successfully justified in discussion with the planners as best way of complimenting the existing red brick historic structures.
