Changing needs require creative architectural solutions. St Luke’s Grammar School in the Sydney suburb of Dee Why was no exception when they turned to Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects to assist them in the development of a brand new primary arts & gymnasium complex. Faced with the challenge of curbing spiralling energy costs, allowing for the growth & changing needs of the school community and visually integrating the new buildings with existing structures, TZG has come up with a highly modern interpretation. Key features include the extensive use of aluminium perforated panelling in natural anodised tones, combined with brightly coloured highlights, for both solar awnings & walkway safety balustrades. Continuing this theme to older buildings within the complex has smoothed the visual transition through the school while also providing a more comfortable work environment in these areas.
