Stripy Melbourne primary school by McBride Charles Ryan
A stripy facade modelled on a skyline bounds the circular campus of this Melbourne primary school designed by australian firm McBride Charles Ryan. McBride was asked to bring together three existing primary schools in the Melbourne suburb of Dallas, which is one of the city’s most deprived neighbourhoods. The vibrant tiles were added in stripes around the exterior, making a request for colour from local residents. The bold colour scheme continues throughout the interiors, helping to aid orientation around the campus. The plan is arranged to produce several shared spaces, sheltered by the surrounding classrooms and community facilities.
