The proposed new Year Seven Building sits within a Heritage listed precinct on the eastern side of the All Hallows' School campus. The building comprises a basement car park with 4 floors containing 15 classrooms, enclosing one side of a courtyard formed next to the 1919 University Wing of the Main Building. Associated external works includes a new tennis/netball court and the complete redevelopment of St Josephs Court as outdoor student activity space.
The building sets up an overt dialogue with it's heritage context. From Kemp place a series of layered screens serves to modulate the scale of the building. The dominant element of the upper level sunshade screen uses a mix of colours fine-tuned to highlight the original buildings. Within the courtyard a wall with a large opening acts as a theatrical proscenium arch, transforming the back of the buildings to a framed backdrop.
