This three-storey school activity centre uses the natural topography (an 8m level change) to blend with the landscape of the green belt. The form also links the previously under-used higher-level athletics track to the school. Key to achieving this was a processional staircase at the heart of the building. It provides a visual connection between all the spaces and is a fundamental driver for the building’s design. A glulam roof structure and CLT deck span the activity spaces and push the limits of structural timber to create a wave-like form.
