Waimea Heights Primary

New Library & Administration facilities

As part of BER program, M2a was commissioned to design a new library, upgrade administration, refurbish student toilets and undertake classroom refurbishments at Waimea Heights Primary School.

Our solution was to insert a new building between existing buildings to form a new hub for the school and in the process to redevelop the external spaces and walkways to provide sheltered and fully accessible pedestrian flow.

The roof form of the Library allows good natural light deep into the space and provides good cross-flow ventilation when required. Check out our short video!

Construction was completed in July 2011.
