St. Aloysius College Junior School

Elder and Cannon Architects

The Junior School is a similar scale to the neighbouring buildings, but has a contemporary language with a break-up that sympathises with the vertical emphasis of the tenement. The organisation came from a client desire for a light, airy yet traditional teaching environment. The five storey South elevation, was designed to maximise air and light into the classes, but layered to give shade and privacy. The school is organised vertically. Classrooms are raised above Ground Floor to maximise security and privacy, and are organised around a triple-height central lightwell which creates a dynamic orientation and play space for the pupils.
