Western Suburbs Special School

Name: Western Suburbs Special School

Date: 02-Mar-2010

Client: Queensland Department of Education, Training and Employment

Builder: FKG Group

Category: Educational, Government

Description:

8i Architects was engaged by FKG to design and document the new School Administration Building, General Learning Area Block and BER Hall for Western Suburbs Special School.

 

The use of natural ventilation, natural lighting and acoustic attenuation strategies in the Administration Building and General Learning Areas provides an energy efficient, thermally comfortable building enjoyed by students and teachers.

 

The 380m² BER Hall incorporated amenities, storage areas and a large open hall space. In contrast to the low key exterior, the interior of the hall was brightly coloured with translucent roof sheeting to provide natural lighting.

Testimonials

I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 

 

In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
