sustainable teaching space.
Ajay, an AS student from Strode’s College, spent time at an architects on
work experience. He kept in touch and learned of a project they were
developing for a sustainable teaching space at The Chelsea Physic Garden.

Developing a sustainable building is not an easy task but Ajay has managed
to keep sustainable design principles at the forefront of his thinking. He
identified many important issues and did his best to find sustainable
solutions. Solar panels, local sourcing, re-using existing resources, a
living roof were all aimed at reducing environmental impact.
