LYTTELTON PRIMARY SCHOOL
A brand new two-storey school on the main street of lyttelton is the result of a post-earthquake merger of Lyttelton Main and Lyttelton West schools.
In just 16 months, this new school for 300 pupils was designed and built on a small, terraced site with known contamination issues. The new layout promotes a flexible approach to learning, with two floors of open-plan learning.
The main building includes a classroom block with modern open plan classrooms on two levels, with glass paritioned learning spaces and joinery units to cater for the school environment.
The adjoining administration block includes the library and technology spaces upstairs, with the reception and staff areas on the ground and staff areas on the ground floor below. In a first for New Zealand, the separate hall is shared with the local professional theatre company.
