St Thomas the Apostle Primary School naturally ventilated with Breezway
CRANBOURNE EAST, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
St Thomas the Apostle Primary School is part of the new Parish of St Thomas the Apostle in Cranbourne. The site will also eventually house a new Church and Parish Facilities in future stages. The school community strives to be a place of prayer, service, thanksgiving and reconciliation.
The design aims to provide a learning environment that educates, challenges and engages. To facilitate this, spaces were designed with 21st Century collaborative teaching and learning in mind. Staff at the school were keen to move away from traditional cellular classroom design towards a flexible variety of linked Learning Spaces, with shared Learning Commons which allow for student circulation as well as break-out learning areas.
Breezway Louvre Windows have been strategically placed to bring natural light and fresh air into the learning environments to provide healthier, more comfortable spaces for teachers and students.
