Our team was appointed in 2015 to work with Valkstone Primary School to develop a masterplan that considered the role of the school within the wider community and the interactions and relationships evident within the layers of existing community artefacts. The first stage of masterplanned works comprises a new integrated Administration Hub and Junior Learning Neighbourhood. Designed to provide a strong civic presence and sense of identity for the school, the new Administration Hub features an entry terrace with dynamic canopy shaping a welcoming interface with the street. The Junior Learning Neighbourhood provides agile spaces where the learning experience of the students is central. Stage 2 of works will include the refurbishment of existing classrooms to shape a new Middle School Learning Neighbourhood, and the addition of a new Senior School Learning Neighbourhood.
