Fergusson Intermediate School

We collaborated with McKenzie Higham Architects on an NZIA award winning redevelopment of Fergusson Intermediate in Upper Hutt. A new central courtyard was created between old and new buildings as well as a new car park and pedestrian entry. The design uses the contrasting materials of concrete, asphalt and brick to reference the brick clad buildings and create a dynamic and low cost paving treatment. Rain gardens, nature areas and a variety of outdoor classroom types are employed to maximise learning opportunities in the landscape.
