Cairnsfoot Special Needs School
A Responsive and Considered Design for Cairnsfoot Special Needs School
NBRSARCHITECTURE was appointed to deliver design works for the relocation of the Cairnsfoot School to a new site in Brighton-Le-Sands. Cairnsfoot School is a school for students with moderate or severe intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory impairments and students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The project was primarily delivered through modular prefabrication. The design concept for the school provided an environment which intersects shelter & challenge. The design utilises a holistic approach where the built forms intersect with the natural and outdoor forms.
