The Wesley College ‘Clunes’ Campus facilitates the 8-week residential learning program that forms part of the College’s Year 9 curriculum. The program is a longstanding and cherished tradition, building foundational life skills and confidence through independent living. This framework underpins the built form of the upgraded Campus.
The new facilities include Art and Technology Studios, Covered Outdoor Learning Areas, two General Purpose Studios, a Demonstration Kitchen as part of the retained and adapted heritage dwelling, two Student Residences and student amenities. The design response reflects the dominate character of the overall site which is one of grouped buildings arranged around landscaped spaces. The setbacks, arrangement and visual relationship of the six new separate yet attached structures breathes air, light, greenery and space into the facility.
