British School Rio Features in The Telegraph

The practice has completed a new senior school and landscaped environment for The British School in Rio de Janeiro, which adjoins the 2016 Olympic site.
 
The long, low building, with a footprint of 130m x 19m, forms a 'porte cochère' gateway, creating a spectacular new entrance to the site.

Accommodation clusters are stacked, with voids between classrooms revealing circulation routes and core areas. These nodes provide staircase and lift access, storerooms, and support accommodation for the senior school. The project also provides a multi-purpose hall and learning resource centre, classrooms, a 6th form common room, staff rooms with a private roof-top terrace, and changing rooms.
 
This week the project was referred to as  "The Secret Weapon behind Team GB's Olympics Success" by Simon Briggs in The Daily Telegraph.
