Te Ao Mārama – Sylvester Primary School

Related Systems: Ultratherm MSR
Location: Hamilton
Project Date: September 2018
Architect: ASC Architects

As part of the nationwide PP3 initiative in New Zealand, the Te Ao Marama – Sylvester Primary School project aimed to provide a top-notch educational facility in the Hamilton area. This undertaking involved the construction of four primary two-story teaching blocks, along with the addition of a gymnasium.

As part of the Ministry of Education’s PPP3 Schools Project ASC Architects were required to produce a Primary School design to be built on three separate sites, with the potential for the same design to be provided on future sites. This required a design response that was flexible enough to be used across a range of individual site contexts and adaptable enough to be able to individually reflect the unique qualities of each school’s place, culture and context.
