Rossi Architects were engaged by the NT Government on behalf of Parap Primary School to develop a new master plan for the established school.
As is common in schools that have evolved over several decades, the campus was the result of many small interventions that had not been holistically developed; the result being a lack of connectivity between the facilities.
The scheme developed by Rossi Architects included a number of small interventions aimed at helping to break down some of these barriers to create a create a sense of connectivity within the school, fostering a learning environment where groups can easily move from one mode of learning to another with minimal effort.
One example of this was the proposed relocation of the bicycle store and caretaker’s residence to allow for the creation of a new central learning plaza which will provide a treed green space with covered outdoor learning areas and allow for greater visibility and ease of connection to the library.
Overall, we were proud to provide Parap Primary School with a clear vision to overcome the challenges of their historic campus.
