Victory Primary School’s approach to learning and community has become an example and inspiration to schools throughout New Zealand and is at the heart of the positive growth of the wider Victory community where Brendon was living at the time.

The junior learning centre is a new building connected to existing school classrooms, creating an enclosed courtyard for the new entrants.

A palette of honest natural materials, colours and vegetation was established including stained plywood, grey Colorsteel, timber poles, and specific cultural patterns and colours.

This project was designed by Brendon during his time at Arthouse Architecture.
