Construction. The new Oasis Academy Silvertown is being delivered for the Department for Education and will cater for 600 students aged 11 to 16. Oasis Academy is located in North Woolwich, having welcomed its first intake of students in 2014.

The new building’s design incorporates social space across different levels and will feature a large sports pitch on the roof. A double-height colonnade will open up into the reception area, creating a light, bright entrance space for visitors to the school. The external walls will be folded to create a layered effect and warm white brickwork will be used on the building’s façade to complement the existing and new residential properties in the area including the nearby Grade II listed Silo D, which dates back to the 1920s.
