Glebe, school

The Kerrie Murphy Building is located on the corner of Bay Street and Macarthur Street, in the inner city suburb of Glebe. This contemporary building, named after a former principal, was built in 2011 houses a primary school library, a ground floor covered outdoor learning area, languages faculty offices and a multipurpose space for the International Grammar School.

  4. What an interesting looking building. I wonder how you pronounce the name of the town. I giggled when I did it, so I am guessing it was wrong.

  6. Unique design, I guess the mirrors at the lowest floor are reflecting the surrounding greenery as well.

    1. Arti, the windows on the ground floor have no glass or mirrors in them. This is the outdoor learning centre which has the plants growing there and poking out of the holes
