This project is a new multi-purpose hall for the Templestowe Park Primary School.

Visitors approach the school alongside the new building where a colonnaded canopy/ giant portico signifies a formal entrance to the school and its grounds. The building form is based upon a parabola, which was selected to most efficiently contain performance and sporting functions.

The east façade is painted to refer to the ubiquitous ‘Olympic Stripe’ exercise books. In using this pattern, a powerful visual memory common to many Australian childhoods is recalled and an institutional identity based upon elements of school life is established.
