Australian Institute of Architects – Public Architecture Award 2011

Description: built in 2010 as an addition to Holy Trinity Primary School to enable children to start their early childhood education and then transition smoothly into primary school at the same location, the centre consists of 2 playrooms accomodating 20 children each.  The restrictive siting of the building between the existing school and a group of mature plane trees was a challenge and as a result, a deck built between and around the trees was included as a functional outdoor play area and the two playrooms open up onto it.  The complex provides a vibrant, functional and pleasant environment as learning spaces for young minds.
