Tidemill Academy

A visionary project co-locating education and community facilities at the heart of Lewisham’s regeneration of Deptford town centre.  The school hall, rooftop ball court and refectory are all designed for dual use with separate access points from within the school, from the Lounge, and from the public realm.

The far wing of the school on Resolution Way consists of a five-storey building which provides studios and exhibition space for small businesses and local artists, and 38 affordable apartments. The Deptford Lounge and Tidemill Academy open onto Giffin Square, a new public space at the heart of Deptford.
