Coleridge Primary School
Bespoke steel canopy
Coleridge Primary School in London had an old shelter in the junior playground which had been damaged in an autumn storm.
The school asked Setter Play to install a new canopy, of a similar design to their old one, but with much stronger reinforcement.
Setter Play utilised the existing concrete slabs as the foundations for the new design, saving the school money, and designed an all-black steel canopy in line with the school's wishes. The industrial design was based on old Victorian railway stations in London.
The canopy itself utilises opal polycarbonate roofing sheets, which reflect the sun’s UV rays, and has guttering at either end for orderly rainwater collection.
The shelter has become a key part of the junior playground at the school and is now used for a variety of functions and gatherings.
