The surrounding context and conservative planning controls required a responsive design that complemented the site’s character.
The project developed an existing primary school campus in a constrained inner-city location. The school’s new façade reflects features of the surrounding heritage buildings while, internally, the new layout passively interacts with central parts of the ground level school campus.
New classrooms, open-air learning spaces and performing arts facilities will provide students with an interactive learning environment while a competition-size basketball court caters both to students and community groups.
The design response provides a welcoming pedestrian entrance from Bank Street and new landscaping along the frontage.
