Cairns Primary School

Cairns Primary School
2012
The 14 classroom school, with integrated nursery, follows a simple rational layout with all of the teaching accommodation accessed directly off a central atrium, eliminating the need for any narrow corridors within the school.

The central 'street' is top lit naturally with clerestory glazing, allowing for daylight and ventilation into the heart of the floor plan.

This is populated by a series of shared spaces; the library, ICT suite and General Purpose Areas, giving a real focal point to the school and allowing visible connections to be made between all of the spaces.
