KI Provides Classroom Furniture for Chelsea Academy
KI have provided classroom furniture for the new Chelsea Academy in Lots Road, London, working with FF&E Consultants Alligan and furniture suppliers Portsdown Education. This new Academy is sponsored by the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS) in association with The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It will provide world-class education for approximately 800 pupils in years 7 to 11 and 250 students in the sixth form.
The Academy building, designed by architectural practice Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, ranges between two and four floors built in linking blocks with atrium and open spaces providing good circulation space and internal light, which are key on this tight site. The furniture for the new building similarly needed to be appropriate for the aspirational setting but robust and fit for purpose and the Academy employed both the help of the students and teachers in the selection of the classroom furniture.
