Pembroke Middle School

The landscape design of the Pembroke Middle School Redevelopment delivers a high-quality and engaging external environment which celebrates and enhances the school’s teaching and learning program.

The unique triangular site and angled orientation of Kensington influenced and provided context for the design. Through collaboration with Grieve Gillett Architects, a series of outdoor courtyards across the campus ‘village’ provide a strong relationship between external and internal spaces. They connect students and staff with the surrounding natural environment as they move through all three building levels. This innovative, multi-dimensional approach to the landscape extends to the internal planting design, which frame the internal atrium and reinforces the value of the buildings natural systems.
