Ashmount Primary School is part of a wider scheme that turned a neglected part of north London into an exemplar carbon-negative development, including a nursery, primary school, youth centre and ecologically restored community park.

A range of passive design measures helped reduce energy consumption, while materials were selected for recycled content and minimal impact. The design provides flexible and adaptable learning spaces, allows for community use outside school hours and motivates children to learn about the natural world around them.

Rafael Marks will deliver a talk ‘A carbon-negative school’ to the School Design Study Group at the University of Cambridge on Wednesday 23rd November explaining how this was achieved.
