Description

Kismet Park is a primary school with a curriculum focus on the Performing Arts. The existing building stock, whilst generally in good condition, was poorly planned with excess circulation space and not meeting the school's contemporary needs. A re-landscaped front gate and walkway creates a more direct, comprehensible path to the upgraded Administration. Working within the structural framework of the existing building, the refurbished Administration creates a more secure, accessible space for staff, students and visitors. A key insertion to the existing built fabric, the Performing Arts & Music building is a distorted, rectilinear plan with a strong, dynamic roof creating a flexible space filled with South light. The raked acoustic ceiling creates a responsive environment for active and passive performances; a vibrant orange window seat creates a private recess for small group interactions. The angular form accentuates the linear plan; a gesture that reinforces our belief that simple projects don't need to be static. The direct connection to the existing stage enables the space to be used as a green room during performances (a centrepiece of the school's year); however the success of this modest project is the manner in which it is engaged with by the broader school community.
