School Design | Kerrie Murphy Building | International Grammar School | Sydney | Allen Jack+Cottier


Allen Jack+Cottier have delivered this naturally ventilated mixed mode school building on the same BER budget that delivered a single school hall to most schools.

The facilities consist of an arts and crafts facility, a library, staff offices and an indoor sports hall. The roof is to become an outdoor playground shaded by an array of photovoltaic cells. This represents an enormous achievement for such a tight budget.
The iconic form of the building was inspired by the formidable collection of large brick warehouse buildings which give Ultimo its distinctive character.
