KEMPSEY 1980 – 1991
The project was comissioned after the clients visited Lorien Novalis School.This Aboriginal Academy required an original approach. The classrooms and specialist rooms form part of a horse shoe plan around a central courtyard. The steeply pitched roofs and the rolled skylights echo the forms of the mountain behind. Generous ceiling volumes, exposed hardwood structure and skylights create dynamic spaces around simple block walls. The building has now been repurposed as a health retreat.
