JTD have been appointed to reimagine the reception area for Acland Burghley Secondary School in at Tufnell Park in North London; a 1960’s post-war brutalist building by Howell Killick Partridge & Amis Architects.

The school, whose design and programme was propelled by the ambitious headmaster L A V Abley, provides secondary and sixth form education for 1000 students within the newly awarded Grade II listed building. Over the past few decades, some of the building’s original features had been lost and replaced. The practice is looking forward to envision a new adaptation of reception and be part of the creation that will form the new face of the school.
