See Saw Do was briefed by the Otto Foundation to design a library space for Holy Cross Primary School.
The brief had an array of challenges after the school had a tragic fire which limited the space available.
Further more, the project implementation needed to be broken into phases to assist with fundraising one step at a time.
Through working closely with the school staff, we identified a dark under utilised space that could hold the vision for a library. Due to the limited resources at the school, we aimed to develop a space that is multifunctional. This space finds itself at the heart of the school, not only does it function as a space to store and read books, but it is a hub space that can host, staff meetings, presentations, after school programs and in the near future, a digital media lab upstairs.
