serpentine primary school administration building

The Serpentine Primary School Administration Building is a Department of Education standard pattern plan that creates a new entry to the school.

It addresses the street celebrating the movement of water both metaphorically (abstract circular columns) and literally (expression of stormwater).

The southern eaves overhang stretches to shade a waiting place, this place is formed by cascading brickwork, referencing the local Serpentine Falls.

Small gestures connect to local events, the bent pipe and off-set lettering, the patterned brickwork, the blade walls. Such items form part of local path of discovery.
