2015 NZIA Architecture Award Education, Western Region
Facing a difficult challenge to locate a pre-school in an industrial area,
the architect has responded by using the industrial aesthetic
of simple form and basic
materials appropriate to the scale, robustness, and limited budget of this project.
The result is a simple but well planned environment,
with the industrial aesthetic lifted through the use of opalescent cladding and
counterbalanced by a natural outdoor play area.
