Glowrey Catholic Primary School

Baldasso Cortese has delivered stage two of a design for Glowrey Primary School, seamlessly contrasting with the adjoining stage one building.

Stage two works include a new learning community building incorporating 9 classrooms, project space, and various breakout spaces at the heart of the plan. A beautiful feature of the design is a batten screen encasing the roofline, constructed from Aluminium Click-on Battens.

Sleek Screening

Our aluminium Click-on Battens line the perimeter of the building as a batten screen. This frames the deep loggia spaces surrounding the building, providing shelter and a variety of gathering spaces for the students.

Above the batten screen is a striking singular skillion roof, precisely angled and splayed to provide welcomed shade from the hot sun in summer and sunlight in winter.

Shade and Shelter

The Click-on Battens are an innovative product with a variety of uses. In this instance, they’re applied to create a screen, which is a clever choice as they allow light to seep through while also providing some protection from the elements.

The aluminium was chosen to be a powder-coated finish in Duralloy Shoji White Satin. As seen in our photos, creates a beautiful sheen and brightness to the buildings surroundings. A lovely light environment for students and teachers to inhabit every day.
