The brief called for a new classroom block which would provide the School with five new general learning areas, two music rooms, shared staff areas and toilet facilities. The Primary School which is located in the green surrounds of the Darling Scarp, has limited land for expansion. Our solution was to design a two levelled classroom block with vast undercover balconies providing protection from both the rain and sun year round. The balcony space provides a tree top perspective of the natural setting and surrounding environment.
The design incorporates the philosophy of pedagogy, creating interesting learning spaces and outdoor areas for students and staff, with views across the school and through the valley beyond.
