In addition to providing a key learning space, the courtyard form acts as an environmental device which brings natural light and ventilation to the centre of the building. As a passive, sustainable design, the courtyard solution has allowed us to minimise the energy needs of the building. The design of the learning spaces within the building delivers semi-open classrooms which focus on shared, flexible space. Circulation areas are doubled up as potential teaching and break-out areas; a key example being the Heller-up stair.
Our expansive experience in delivering primary & secondary school education buildings over the past 15 years has placed us in a unique position of knowledge and perspective to maximise the opportunities within this project and deliver design value as the Lead-Consultant for the project team.
