Architecturally the flowing spaces are arranged with a uniform elongated volume, finished with natural and honest materials to create a familiar residential feel. Internally the classrooms incorporate themes of the natural with playful Autex treetops and natural plywood products integrated with custom designed cabinetry to mimic a natural environment. Employing a neutral color palette, the building acts as a canvas in which children are encouraged to make a space of their own where they can fine tune motor skills and feed their own curiosity.
The natural integration of sustainable features throughout the design includes extensive passive ventilation and good winter sun penetration in deep room, External shaded areas such as the concealed carparking and entry space is provided by extending the first floor in an integrated way. Similarly, the outdoor decking area on the ground floor is covered to minimize heat and glare. With extensive glazing covering the two ends of the building low E-coated glass is implemented for minimal heat loss.
Effectively glazing and cross ventilation throughout the building minimizes the need for mechanical heating/cooling and artificial lighting within the classrooms ensuring a healthy indoor environment is maintained.
