PEGS Junior (2011)
The new Junior Boys building at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School sits on a primarily residential street. The building derives its form from the silhouette of a typical Australian heritage home which is extruded as a solid form to house the building's functions.
The silhouette is an appropriate addition to the streetscape; not only fitting in but enhancing the character and intrigue of the street. Internally, the extruded silhouette is expressed as an amorphous, cloud-like form, which allows the internal spaces to be passively cooled by drawing in air from the south facade and expelling hot air through the thermal chimney.
