The location of the Churchie Creative Innovation Arts Hub is at the gateway between the Preparatory School and Secondary Campus. It defines the edge of the Preparatory School and creates a formal entry statement identifying that you have arrived or left the sub-school.
The facility invites engagement through its contextual but unmistakably contemporary form and character that juxtaposes and connects to the original 100-year-old Schoolhouse building. The Architectural language is ‘Churchie’ and respects its tradition, heritage, and cultural values in both learning and facilities.
The overall effect is a dynamic facility of interconnected voluminous spaces injected with a mix of natural materials and colour creating a sense of excitement that transfers to the boys. It reinforces the idea that learning is dynamic and takes place everywhere and at any time, in a creative hub that actively embraces engagement where students are encouraged to seek and achieve.
