One Tree Point Primary School - new Library and Admin Building

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — One Tree Point Road, Ruakaka

A new library and multipurpose building was required for a year 1-6 primary school at One Tree Point.

This project was delivered, having overcome buildability and budget issues with its light structure and generous spaces intact. The colours of the project represented a departure from the standard uniform colour of the existing school. The colour has become a school favourite as it sets this building apart from its surrounds.

The library project was followed by the refurbishment of the school administration block. This called for the marking of the school’s entry for visitors and the renovation of existing spaces. Again a large panel of colour was used to highlight the new administration entrance, this was to complement the existing paintwork to be retained, and to be a background for the school’s logo.

The library building red was initially preferred but a blue was chosen to complement the school’s seaside location with a strip of red running to the interior.
