Aberfoyle Park High School is integrated with the community via pedestrian corridors and shared amenities. The aim of the redesign was to foster community connections in a safer, more meaningful way, while enriching the learning experience. This resulted in the construction of a new reception building to create a focal entry statement to the site.
Collaborative learning was at the forefront of the design planning process, with the school stepping away from the traditional classroom to embrace flexible, open learning areas with a connection to the outdoors.
Major internal refurbishment to several existing buildings accompanied the new construction, including an upgrade to the school’s performing arts centre to create a theatre suitable for larger performances and events.
The result is a blend of contemporary architecture with natural materials and an earthen green palette reminiscent of the Australian bush that blends harmoniously with other upgrades and the buildings’ natural surrounds.
