An expansion to a school, adding maximum possible internal area while compromising external play area as much as possible. The design was developed through a series of consultations with staff and parents, establishing a clear brief. The brief was fulfilled by adding a three storey extension that contributes to the local streetscape, and creates a secure zone for a play area to the rear. Classrooms are organised along a central circulation zone, all of which are spacious and light, tanks to large windows and rooflights throughout. The school uses natural ventilation and the coolth of thermal mass from the concrete structure to minimise environmental impact.
