Archbishop Tenison School
Archbishop Tenison’s School was founded in 1685 by Thomas Tenison, who at the time was the time Vicar of St. Martins-in the-Fields Trafalgar Square.
Thomas wanted to provide the first free education for boys in London so he founded both a school and library within the precincts of the church. His innovative approach is still alive today, with our modern curriculum supported by traditional values.
A design, manufacture and installation project for an Arts and Technology Facility, the client had installed a specially commissioned sectional building on the roof of the school, and the InterFocus brief was to provide a bright and airy design, that would provide maximum flexibility, whist providing ample storage and pupil seating for the classrooms. The classrooms also had folding room dividers installed.
The furniture for this project was manufactured using a Maple melamine faced MDF material, with the computer stations supported on free standing C frames. Using the same light maple colour throughout, ensured the room remained bright and aesthetically pleasing.
