AR Awards Schools Winner: Whitehorse Manor School extension in London by Hayhurst and Co

The transformation of the 630-pupil Whitehorse Manor Infant and Junior Schools has a single defining, and potentially trivialising, headline image: the copper-clad cowl-cum-combover that links the bookend buildings - one Victorian, the other built in the 1970s - which face the traffic sluicing past the frontage along the A212.

Hayhurst and Co was a practice of three architects when the scheme was conceived in 2009 for the Pegasus Academy Trust, and Nick Hayhurst admits there was a laser-like intensity and ambition at work; it was obviously a chance for them to make an early mark. However, the combover has nothing to do with wow-factor intentions.
