Fitzroy Community School 1

Thornbury
completed 2011

This school campus consists of elemental forms achieved with a restricted material palette and enriched through landscape. A new volume positioned towards the street creates a generous, sun filled courtyard.  A warm timber box protected by a singular roof and greenhouse veranda. The veranda is used for circulation, protection from the sun, cold southerly winds and the busy road. Designed in association with Baracco+Wright. Photographs by Derek Swalwell.
