Through a consultative design process, Broadfield School challenged the Jasmax team to create a new “cutting-edge country” learning and administration hub, reflective of their future-focussed attitude, yet anchored in the school’s rural heritage.

The resulting, striking new 261sqm building has supported a pedagogical shift at the school, providing a two classroom-equivalent flexible learning space adaptable for future roll growth and an inspiring locus for the school’s rural community.

The collaboration between the Ministry of Education, school and design team subtly references the original 1860’s Broadfield School building located nearby with a simple form and material palette, including natural and tactile materials which encourage people to interact with the building.

The gifting of new classroom names by the Ngāi Tahu Tuahuriri runanga has further strengthened the school’s community relationships.

The school community were also intimately involved with the construction of the Jasmax designed landscape which has allowed this new addition to feel integrated within the existing fabric of the school.
