Wainui School New Classroom Block


Wainui School New Classroom Block

DLM Architects were commissioned by the Ministry of Education to design 3 new teaching spaces at Wainui School. The site was agreed to be at the front of the school and to integrate with the new drop off and turning bay which we also designed.


The site was such that the building was elevated on the west so it was joined on the east elevation to an existing court via a large covered space for outdoor learning and play. The 3 teaching spaces have adjoining withdrawal spaces and a maker space. The design intent was to deliver flexible but discreet spaces that connect to the outside and each other but are separable if required.  


The outcome is a well considered building with a real presence.
