Greenfields Junior School
This elegant extension to an existing SCOLA built junior school has been designed in conjunction with HCC Architects Department.
A significant change in level between the extension and the original school has been utilised to provide a new entrance and learning resource area at the same level as the existing car park. This has resulted in a dynamic approach with increased visibility to and from the new entrance that significantly improves the school’s presence within the community.
The teaching accommodation has been located to create a landscaped secure courtyard with floor to ceiling elevations of glass and timber under a unifying flat roof extended to provide solar shading and shelter. Four large lanterns provide colour as well as light and ventilation to the classrooms.
