Fairfield Primary School
A Modular School
NBRSARCHITECTURE designed a modular solution for Fairfield Primary School as part of a Victorian School Building Authority Capital Works Project. The school required a new double storey facility to support their grade five and six students for the start of the 2019 school year.
The unique building design opens up on the ground floor to a column free walkway with tiered seating. This space functions as an informal outdoor teaching space. On the first floor the walkway has been enclosed and doubles as a learning commons, an efficient use of space that provides additional teaching areas.
The façade screening design and window orientation maximises natural light to internal spaces and reduces energy demand. The specification of low energy fittings and high spec thermal insulation ensures a sustainable building design. .
