A school-funded project completed in November 2020 for $1.4 million.
ClarkeHopkinsClarke transformed the school’s 1970s library into a modern discovery centre as part of this school-funded project.
The school wanted a multifunctional learning hub, with a design that puts equal importance on technology and a connection to nature.
Thanks to ClarkeHopkinsClarke, students now have a contemporary learning environment, with diverse zones for collaboration, individual study, storytelling, a digital lab, and a wet area for STEM activities.
The design has opened up new learning opportunities, with students now engaged in coding, robotics, digital simulations and conducting their own experiments in chemical science.
The judges described it as a joyful design that inspired curiosity. They liked the way it connected with nature through plant walls, large windows and outdoor learning spaces and they noted the fun of including a large fireplace in the design, as a nod to the tradition of gathering around the fire for storytelling.
