2018 Canterbury Architecture Awards Winner
Cathedral Grammar Junior School
Teaching children of this age is a skill that requires immense patience and diligence. To compose a building that is so ‘scale specific’ to its primary occupants also requires immense patience and diligence, coupled with serious architectural skill. Proportion and composition have been impeccably resolved to a high level of accuracy; structure and spaces are in full harmony. Students at this school have a close relationship with their teachers and seem to thrive. Colour, texture and even the smell of the timbers are all inspirational. Any building that allows children to play on its roof is a winner.
