award 2007 School Design

This project is located in Timboon, regional Western Victoria.

This new open-learning facility is designed to immerse students into their rural environment. The building is for year’s 5-8. A juxtaposition of materials, use of sunlight and shading allow this free-standing building to also serve to heighten students’ awareness of time, calendar and season.

This was the first in a string of projects to play with sciography.
