“The Old Schoolhouse, is special, it puts architecture in the urban realm and at the heart of a community.

The clever plan resolutions, and contextual architectural inspirations ensured that the architectural delivery is respectful, honest, polite and rich.

This project raises the inherent values and pride, that every building at the heart of a community, can deliver by repurposing them.”
