Oranga Primary School New Classroom Block 
 

A new single storey five classroom block has been positioned on the north eastern side of the school opposite an existing classroom block and playing courts. The building has a simple form with design elements taken from the existing school such as brick, weatherboard cladding and metal roofing and colour pallet to ground the new building into the site and create a coherent sense of belonging.

 

Internally the classroom is designed in a way that enables collaborative & co-teaching practices within the five large flexible learning hubs. The breakout rooms provide quiet spaces for smaller group learning with glazed walls adding visual connection to the larger learning hubs. Timber batten screens and window seating create partial privacy and nooks for student to tuck away into and read a book. Interactive play and learning is encouraged through design features such as embedded jelly bean wall seating, lego and peg walls.
