No doubt a challenging brief, this school extension more than triples the size of the original main building, delivering an impressive transformation of the existing school. The beautiful acoustic ply ceiling in the library provides a warm, nurturing environment, and bounces light entering through the highlights deep into the space. Skillful application of timber unifies the multitude of different spaces, each with their own distinct function and requirements. As the material of choice for joinery, tessellated plywood creates a timber ‘mosaic’, and this theme is consistently reflected throughout, from reception to wall cladding, from furniture to light objects and windows. A clear winner demonstrating excellent use of timber.
