Frank Schirripa Food Technology + Horticulture Centre at Woodville High School reflects the school’s core values of community, inclusivity, and cultural diversity. The flexible learning space supports a unique horticultural program, food technology and Vocational Education Training to enable students to develop community and career pathways.
The built form nestles amongst gum trees.
Skillion roofs wrap the footprint of the building to draw natural lighting into each learning space. Lower-level arbours and a series of tiered walkways overlook and descend into the horticultural garden comprising garden beds, fruit trees, a pond, and greenhouses. A whole-of-life cycle approach to the design provides connectivity and accessibility of learning spaces with the garden and landscaping. Integrated biophilic principles – access to light and ventilation – enhance learning outcomes and improve wellbeing.
