Where form meets function

For much of the late 90s the only time I went to Streatham was for big nights out at Ceasers. Twenty quid all you can drink. There were also free burgers if one was feeling intrepid. Needless to say, not the classiest establishment.

Now, kids in Streatham have something a bit more upmarket to entertain them. Dunraven School’s new sports hall is built from recycled shipping containers follows a few earlier projects, but might be the first project in education utilizing the material. Three sides of the building (designed by Scabal) are made of stacked containers, while the fourth is a polycarbonate. The resulting hall celebrates the school and the material at once. A nice new addition to the area. (via ArchDaily).
