St Annes Primary School

St Anne’s Primary School wanted to re-build a large portion of their school – including three new classroom blocks. This offered the opportunity for the designer to establish built form that responds to the needs of the students and reflects the promising future of the school. The design encompasses unique form and aesthetic appeal while still maintaining direct links to the functional requirements of the buildings. The built form expresses quality, permanence, and attention to detail, contemporary appeal and a commitment to a positive learning environment. “The design reflects the institutional function but demonstrates that institutions can be colourful, fun, functional and safe through the creative use of the building massing, light and appropriate choice of materials,” said NRG Systems’ Ken Sibley. ”Orientation, fenestration, shading, insulation, choice of materials and attention to detail made it worthy of consideration for several Awards.”
