BER funding, augmented by the school, allowed for a new primary school hall, staff room & learning support rooms as well as amenities, canteen, music and craft rooms below.
The two storey building is carved into the site achieving an engaging and friendly scale despite a packed program. The sinuous verandah edge circumscribes the lower level piazza that creates an active community space adjacent the canteen. The well-equipped stage and acoustically modelled hall support a variety of uses within a beautiful space.
Previously commissioned timber classrooms follow the contours to provide level access to connected garden courtyards on one side with masonry undercroft space for amenities and auxillary space on the lower side. Undulating verandahs create eddies denoting entries and create covered play areas, bag storage and breezeways.
The school was awarded Warringah Council 1995 urban design award.
