Hansen Yuncken partnered with Charles Wright Architects to deliver the new science building at Trinity Anglican School, a Class 9b building under the Building Code of Australia (BCA). It is a two-storey structure of concrete and single masonry block construction wrapped in an articulated sunscreen of prefabricated steel channels.
The ground floor comprises two learning areas, a teachers’ room, reception and an airconditioning plant room. The first floor comprises two physics laboratories, two biology laboratories, two chemistry laboratories, associated stores and a teachers’ office. The interiors of these spaces are sparsely utilitarian, with services expressed against off-form concrete ceilings. The roof is covered in synthetic grass, providing events and solar equipment areas and accessed by the central stairs and lift.
