The Warren Integrated Studies Hub is a multi-disciplinary STEAM facility located centrally within the Macarthur Anglican School Campus. The brief was to design a campus precinct to co-locate Science, D+T, ICT, Maths, Art, and Agriculture in a mixed indoor / outdoor setting conducive to cross disciplinary interactions. The resulting design combines a signature new building together with the adaptive re-use and expansion of an existing building, both of which are seamlessly integrated with redeveloped outdoor spaces which extend both learning and recreation across the indoor and outdoor settings.
The new building is designed with strong visual links to the parkland setting and abundant opportunities to access daylight, fresh air, and open and semi-enclosed spaces. The alterations and additions to existing building and open spaces creates an appropriate transition from the remaining existing campus to the contemporary architecture, which sets a new standard for future work across the campus.
