A modern teaching place that respects the past. The Foundation Building is located in a tightly constrained heritage setting, between the historic Ballantyne House and Waimairi Stream.

Efficient structural design was required to create the open spaces and break out rooms in the building. Working closely with the architectural team and the school the result is an open and inviting space in which to teach and learn.
