Kruinsig Primary School - Grade R Classrooms

Kruinsig Primary School – Grade R Classrooms

Glen marais, Kempton Park
We designed these Grade-R classrooms at a Primary school in Kempton park consisting of 8 class rooms, a sickroom, offices, a bathroom block and a kitchenette. The classrooms are situated around a planted central courtyard space, while the bold colors of the school’s logo, pre-cast concrete elements (concrete storm water pipes and breeze blocks) and various solar control devices are used to create playful architecture. Solid free-form balustrades ensures the safety of the children while clerestory windows and carefully designed poly-carbonate sheeting draws natural light into the classrooms. The analogy of a tree was explored in the design of the structural trusses of the roofs, which could be further designed to become a jungle gym or support swings above the sand pit.
