The award winning John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School (JSRACS) Beechboro Kindergarten designed by Brooking Design Architects features a play between natural light and energy efficient LEDS-C4 lights supplied by HALO Lighting.
March 6th, 2014
A smart, well-organised teaching space is developed in line with Eco-building principles, materials and finishes. Drawing on a Nordic style of design, the space features abundant natural light sourced from overhead skylights in combination with linear, energy-efficient ceiling mounted lights (INFINITE series by LEDS C4).
The INFINITE series that features in the Kindergarten complements the geometry of the space and adds to the aesthetics created by the Brooking Design team. Comfortable illumination is provided by INFINITE surface mounted luminaires, which complements the natural light from skylights. Low-glare illumination is key when creating a comfortable working and learning environment.
Suitable for a range of commercial, public, and private spaces, INFINITE series is available as a recessed, surface mounted or suspended unit and lengths can be modified to suit requests.
JSRACS Kindergarten has won a number of awards for design excellence, including the Australian Institute of Architects (WA Chapter) ‘The Julius Elischer Award for Interior Architecture’, the Design Institute of Architects ‘Best of State: Public Buildings/Sustainability’ and Dulux Colour Awards’ ‘Commercial Interiors Nomination: Premiers Award Design Excellence’.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
