Penleigh and Essendon Grammar (PEGS) Junior Boys School

PEGS Junior Boys School acknowledges and exploits its unusual urban condition, from the street its oversized silhouette dominates, from the sports ground the building is like a federation grandstand. The interior, especially upstairs where the shape of the building’s extrusion is expressed, is intriguing. We hoped to stimulate young boy’s imaginations. Is it Hogwarts? Is it Institutional? We wanted them to have a clear memory of the school life at the end of their junior years.
