PEGS Junior Boys School: Years 5 & 6 Building – IDEA 2020

PEGS Junior Boys School: Years 5 & 6 Building

A mix of former houses makes up the buildings of this school campus. This new building exploits the ambiguity of the school’s built forms, with an internal architecture that relates to the bold external form. The design of the classrooms explores space, form, colour, materiality, passage and transition. Representing childhood imagination, the interior features rich, earthy colours on the ground floor and an ethereal first floor, with the cloudlike silhouette of the exterior form defying expectations.
