Project summary

The Currumbin State School OSHC is a dedicated facility for outside school hours care.

The new works form an extension to the existing hall enabling use of established services (kitchen, amenities etc.). This connection allowed limited funding to be directed towards the core service, that is a large space to cater for large numbers of students. This space has been located to open directly onto an existing shaded playground, oval and sports courts while introducing a large, covered circulation space open on the north and south that lets the building breathe.

The main space has a simple skillion roof opening to the north allowing the insertion of a small mezzanine that provides intimate spaces within the larger volume. Heavy walls on the western side includes a storage wall and protect from the western sun.

The unique design of the space has totally transformed the way in which the educators operate.

By providing within, areas that are calming and quiet, functional and hands on, to indoor/ outdoor learning areas.

A truly efficient and functional workspace for staff and a fun, inviting and happy place for the students of Currumbin State School OSHC.
