Greenwich Millennium School and Health Centre

Greenwich Millennium School and Health Centre

Located within the Greenwich Millennium Village, this two-form entry primary school, community hall and early years centre opened in February 2001, with the health centre following on in June 2001.

This school and health centre was opened in 2001. The structure is of steel and concrete but the building is particularly notable as an early use of larch rainscreen cladding in the UK.

Three external elevations are finished with vertically-boarded cladding in homegrown European larch and the fourth with high performance aluminium-faced timber windows.

In 2019 an explosion of colour appeared on the sedate lawn of Dulwich Picture Gallery. It was the Colour Palace, a timber pavilion painted in exuberant geometric patterns and stripes in a kaleidoscope of zinging neon colours.
