PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A new primary school based on the BMW Standard Pattern Primary School brief consisting of an administration building, Library, covered assembly and four teaching blocks. The school is designed to cater for approximately 40 staff and 430 students from Kindergarten through to Year 6.

Design of the school incorporates a strong community presence and identity along Gracefield Boulevard and Fairhaven Avenue. The creation of courtyards / play area between buildings conducive for primary aged students and a raised gathering space located in the centre of the school provide play and learning spaces outside the classrooms.

Public access to the school oval is provided whilst maintaining security to the school's infrastructure. Access to the school has been provided with pedestrian paths from the adjoining residential subdivision and an even distribution of parking facilities and bike parks.

The buildings orientated to maximize passive design principles and provide protection from strong easterly and south westerly winds; which are enhanced by appropriately landscaped areas adjacent to buildings.
