Opened in the 1970’s, Woodleigh High school is an independent, progressive school with an emphasis on independent thought. Providing the building services engineering and sustainable design for this unique project required a thorough understanding of the client needs.
The school’s many teaching spaces are required to be flexible enough for the variety of class sizes and subjects that the students experience. This necessitated the use of a design that included sliding walls and partitioning curtains, generating a variety of contemporary learning settings.
Working collaboratively with Law Architects the project achieved an integrated and holistic sustainable climatically responsive design response which included:
The quality of the Woodleigh School Homesteads was also recognised internationally by winning international A+ Architizer Popular Choice Award for Architecture + Learning.
The Gungahalin College project is a mix of educational and community facilities in an integrated campus with a strong sustainability focus achieving a 5-star Green Star Design Rating.
The Sustainability Centre designed for St Leonard's College is an exemplar building that showcases a diverse range of passive systems, renewable energy technologies, and flexible teaching spaces.
Suzanne Cory High School is one of two new selective entry schools in Melbourne. The design challenge was to create an exceptional learning environment for the area’s elite students, which also acted as an environmental learning resource.
