A shelter was required for a primary school which could be positioned just off the main play area. It needed to be interesting, attractive, constructed of natural material and safe for use by the children. It was essential that the building provided shade for hot, sunny days and shelter in showery weather. Comfortable seating was important as classes were to be held outdoors in the fresh air for up to 36 children.
It was essential that the structure was not overly large as it was to be utilised by just a few children at a time, as a quiet, reflective or reading area during lunch breaks.
The Colonial Breeze House was the ideal solution. Constructed from natural timbers with a natural Cape Reed thatch roof, the building fitted into this rural location perfectly.
The timber lined roof clad with thatch ensured the building was not only dry in rainy weather but also provided cool shade on hot, sunny days. Bench seating that hugged the handrail ensured that at least 36 children could sit comfortably during their lesson.
The school are delighted with the results and the children love it, taking their books and reading in there at every opportunity.
