Introduction : Team : School : Narratives : Costs : Images

Introduction


The original school was constructed in the 1970’s in response to an educational philosophy that stressed individual learning, student interaction and a fluid style of curriculum delivery often referred to as open concept. The design solution balances open and closed spaces creating an environment that encourages interaction while respecting boundaries. Key responses include:

* Complete Transformation of the existing.

* Open, L shaped classrooms

* Transition Zones buffer open classrooms

* Informal Learning Spaces

* Seamless Design Integration of old and new

* Elongated Library accommodates multiple activities

* View Capture

* Security Zoning

* Flowing ‘tree-like’ space
