The Ministry of Education got a lot of architecture for its money with this transformative project in the small town of Kawerau. Within the tight budget, the architects found a way to provide for a massive overhanging roof that connects the new school’s buildings, which are organised around a central wharenui and oriented to significant geographical and cultural landmarks. The drama of the big sheltering gesture is supported by the attention paid to the planning and detailing of the buildings, and the colours applied to them. Increased attendance rates and improved academic results suggest that the design and performance of the new school is having an inspirational effect on students and the local community.
