Humpty Doo, Jabiru and Jingili Schools, Darwin NT
DKJ projects. architecture were engaged to design and document various educational works at Jabiru, Humpty Doo and Jingili Schools as part of the Building the Education Revolution strategy, under a Design and Construct Procurement method. The works included:
- Jingili School- New covered courtyard & Educational landscape areas.
- Humpty Doo School- Refurbishment of the existing sports hall and new stand alone multi purpose structure.

The design philosophy addressed our own strict parameters of designing for a unique tropical environment. In particular, strategically orientating and articulating built form to capture breezes, maximise shading and deliver spatial quality through simple but concise placement of structure, materials and colour.
