St Kenneth's Primary School

St Kenneth's Primary School
2012
A very modern and contemporary Architectural appearance has been proposed for the new St Kenneth’s Primary School formed around an approach of simplicity in form and materials

Clean crisp, elegant lines are generated by the building which is configured from simple abutting building forms.

The junction between the building forms are expressed by the main teaching block having a higher roof line, mastering the gymnasium/administration block.

The organised rhythm of windows enhances the crisp elegance of the school.

The clipped roof lines and gutters maintain the simplicity of the building form. The gymnasium/administration block gutter and rainwater pipes are recessed into the depth of the wall to maintain a smooth façade.

The elegant appearance of the school is further enhanced by the red multi-brick that has been selected to be respectful to the neighbouring houses and reflect the brick used on the existing school.

The use of timber cladding has been carefully considered and utilised in areas where direct sun light is achieved.
