Project summary

The heritage listed New Farm State School has taken a leap towards the future of education while respecting the distinctive character of its neighbourhood.

New Farm residents are understandably proud of their suburb as a characteristic place. While devising a new master plan for the campus, we demonstrated an inclusive process of community engagement, running multiple workshops with the school and public.

The expanded campus visually integrates with the neighbourhood, brings more green space to the area, improves wayfinding and traffic flow and incorporates a welcoming place for community engagement and participation.

A new learning street has been cut through the middle of the school, linking the original facilities with two new multistorey contemporary learning hubs, connected by outdoor rooms.

The learning street flows between indoor and outdoor learning and play spaces, creating a series of vibrant and colourful contemporary learning environments with a neighbourhood street feel.
