Olga Primary School
A new school extension encourages indoor-outdoor learning environments across all ages.
The extension to Olga Primary school will expand the existing single storey, one form entry school allowing the delivery of life-long learning, sport and recreation to the wider community.
Designed in a distinctive two-block configuration, the grouped public spaces and administrative offices are linked to the teaching block via a glazed spine, providing generous circulation and gathering space within a light and airy environment. Public spaces including the main hall are located at the ground level for easy access, with flexible studios floating above.
The teaching block provides an innovative design solution that allows each classroom to have access to outdoor learning through shared play decks.
The existing heavily wooded perimeter of the site is incorporated within the new landscaping plan to create a protected environment around the school complex further encouraging outdoor learning.
