Eleanor Palmer Science Lab is a learning environment that aims ‘to foster enquiring minds, curiosity and wonder in the world’. Conceived as a ‘wonder room’, a cabinet of curiosities and a place for discovery and experimentation, this small wooden structure answers its programmatic and architectural brief with aplomb. It  is a carefully crafted, environmentally minded, sensitive addition to the local urban fabric, that responds with imagination to complex site and boundary conditions.
