institute for education administration

The IEA was created as an educational bush retreat in an urban setting, with spaces for teaching, study, intellectual exchange, recreation and residence. The raised ground floor of this single-level building has spaces of generous volume set around a landscaped courtyard, with car parking below. A simple palette of materials relates well to the environment, and native plantings and a billabong recreate the indigenous landscape. It is now used as a conference centre.
