Austins Ferry Primary School – Major Redevelopment

1658 view

We are mid way through detailed documentation of this exciting project for the Department of Education. Comprising of seven new general learning areas the design will have a strong community, as well as best-practice educational, focus as it is designed to be used by Kindergarten and Prep classes and for the School’s Launch into Learning programme.

The building has been designed to respond to the natural contours of the site and maintain a close connection with the existing ground plane, as well as use a palette of materials that match its natural setting. General Learning Areas have been designed to open onto the playground and to overlook the existing MONA kitchen garden.  Internally spaces are heavily influenced by natural daylighting opportunities and by views of the surrounding bushland, playground and MONA kitchen garden.
