Eager to attract and retain Sixth Form students, Burlington Danes Academy in White City, West London were looking for new social and break-out space to complement their offer. Having considered portable and modular building options and finding these disappointing, the Academy Leadership Team were looking for a solution that would be inspirational and unconventional. They liked the idea of a glazed enclosed structure in an unused space between their buildings, but didn’t think their Sixth Formers would appreciate a social area that resembled a display case!

The Streetspace structural glazing solution was to use a vertical coloured multiwall polycarbonate system and the result is extremely effective. A unique inspiring and relaxing environment suitable for use all year round is an asset the Academy have added to the attractive facilities now available to the Sixth Form, including a fitness suite, café and astroturf pitch.
