BJA have been been part of the schools growth since its inception in the early 80’s. Master planning, community workshops, alterations and new buildings have been completed in close collaboration with the school community.
The latest project was the BER Hall and Library
Early projects include the original hexagonal class 1, 2 and 3 rooms, followed by the more rectilinear class 4,5 buildings with generous north facing windows and doors behind a twisted pergola. The psychological transitions of the child’s experience through the more nurturing hexagonal shapes to the more alert Class 4, 5 forms, is complemented by the colour sequence from warm reds to yellow.
The school is exemplary in its sustainable building initiatives including rainwater harvesting and re-use, on-site reed bed sewage treatment system, all centred around a biodynamic garden in a rural bush setting.
