BDAV 2017 Building Design Awards

Koala Childcare North Campus

Winner Most Innovative Small Works Project

Designer: Form & Function Building Design
Builder: Nicholson Construction
Photographer: Tracey Togni, Phinc Photography
Location: Warrnambool, VIC

This project won this award for the front fa├žade. The creative brick entry certainly makes a statement. The feature red brickwork pattern is a welcome relief from the muted grey building. A reference and homage to the traditional red clay bricks of the existing 1835 campus building. It shows a great balance of how traditional building materials can be used in a contemporary context. This playful brickwork pattern has created an iconic entry to the Koala Childcare campus.
