Home Base - Riverside Primary School

Home Base aims to address the the need for a designed play space to foster the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) within a mainstream primary school.

 The veranda structure helps to mediate the transition between inside and outside. The play equipment can be used for; creative & cognitive based play; as an outdoor classroom; as a performance space; and is now home to the school's chess club.
