KI have supplied 1,368 Postura+ chairs in a variety of colours and sizes to the classrooms of The Orion Primary School based in Graham Park, Northwest London.
The staff and students of the school were very excited to move into their new premises. Parts of the school have been given ingenious titles, for example, the school offices are now known as Mission Control
The building houses a theatre, dance and recording studio for their students. These facilities are called The Gold Star centre, which is open to the local community and friends.
Working together with ISIS Concepts, KI delivered a large volume of Postura+ chairs in vibrant colours & sizes ranging from 1 to 6 for all of the classrooms ranging from Reception up to Year 6. There are specific colours for each year for instance Year 3 has a colour coordination of blue whilst Year 1 uses lime green, a block of colour has been painted on the outside of the classroom wall with oversized numbers and uses the same coloured chairs all of which assist the children with way finding. Sarah Piers, Project Manager at Isis Concepts said: "Isis chose the Postura+ having used them on a number of previous projects. The new colour range means that we could offer the school the opportunity to have different coloured chairs in different areas to create a fun and engaging learning environment."
The design for the Orion Primary School accommodates for day to day change which comes with school life, as well as adaptability to allow for long term change. The design includes a 180sqm badminton court, creating a flexible hall for school and community use. The reception facilitates public accessibility together with the parent/community room. The layout also creates the potential for drama and outside teaching spaces.
