Project summary

The Primary Administration building creates an entry statement to the primary school serving as home for both administration and teaching staff, embodying functionality and innovation in equal measure.

On the ground floor, a blend of form and function greets visitors with an entry foyer that leads to meeting spaces and offices additionally connecting to the newly refurbished primary school library.

The upper floor area creates a social and gathering space for staff providing a balance between collaboration and respite. This elevated area facilitates professional interactions and also serves as a testament to the commitment to nurturing a vibrant and interconnected educational community.

Approaching the Primary Administration building from the adjacent car park the building overhang extends itself as a protective canopy, creating a well-defined and covered link to the classrooms and outdoor play spaces enhancing accessibility and ensuring that students and staff can move seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.

The Primary Administration Building is a welcome addition to our primary campus and provides modern office spaces and meeting rooms, purpose built first aid facilities, an inviting open plan staff social space and staff wellbeing hub.

The clever positioning of the building enhanced student playspaces and provided an opportunity to redefine the entry of the campus improving pedestrian flow.

The design provides excellent protection from the western sun whilst enabling natural sunlight and airflow and the incorporation of balcony gardens adds softness to the structure.
