Mae Architects  

In West London, close to South Park in Fulham, the English firm Mae has completed a building with timber and bricks where 35% of the construction is composed of recycled materials, prioritizing the use of bolts as structural fixing in order to simplify dismantling.

Flexible spaces make it possible to accommodate a variety of social and educational activities, besides facilitating readaptation should the need arise in the future. The one-level building is organized in two blocks. One contains a multipurpose hall and a café, and the other provides dressing rooms, a common hall, and a nursery.

The triangular roof forms – referencing old glasshouse structures in South Park and at Fulham Palace – create openings for daylight to enter through.
