ECCS meets a unique learning responsibility in WA, where agile pedagogy caters to a high percentage of students with a refugee background, and english their second language.
Empathy drives delivering learning environments – here spaces enjoy high functionality, encouraging exploratory learning and sharing.
Two principle components embody this first stage of the masterplan: ‘Identity’: The project brief developed in synergy with ECCS growth strategy, in an important function for ECCS – elements of the design engage the public, inspiring students and learning. ‘Connection’ the building breaks open adjacent the extraordinary Eucalyptus tree; uniting the heart of ECCS to Hainsworth Park via the breezeway – a transparent moment in the vibrant façade, forming the basis of connection between students, place and the local community.
Taking inspiration from the concept of “Weaving”, the elegant 50m screen addressing Hainsworth Park reflecting African and Asian tones – projecting a welcoming symbol of ECCS to the community.
