Moving into the bottom floor
Today I helped the headmaster move his things into his new office, on the ground floor of the new building.
It is fantastic in there! The only way to get to the new offices is to use the current entrance, and walk all the way down the unusually long corridor to the other end.
In the lobby (for visitors, access to office and headmaster’s office) a wall has been decorated fantastically in Rimu taken from the former building. The Student Services reception is fantastic and it is clear that a lot of money was spend on making the building look “just right”!
In the red zone, the top side of the triangle is covered in reflective metal. The sun reflects off the face and dazzels drivers with it’s light. This could cause an accident and many staff have realized that this is an issue. However, I’m not sure on what they plan on doing about this.
Helping move Mr. French-Wright’s belongings was a challenging task. We moved filling cabinets, his huge desk, the glass top to his desk, boxes, draws, chairs – but his new office is much, much better than the former one. It’s modern, more bright but his desk looks too historical and out of place, so he is getting a curvy one built out of the remaining Rimu from the Cramond Block.
It was great to be able to help out, and the building is fantastic! I’ve added more photos to my previous post so check it out 🙂
