Heathfield High School Redevelopment | Grieve Gillett Architects

Grounded in a deep connection to the Adelaide Hills landscape, the Heathfield High School Redevelopment aligns with the school’s values of collaborative and entrepreneurial learning. GGA’s comprehensive approach included an educational masterplan, addressing disparate pedagogies across the site by arranging faculties with a logical academic progression across the site. Now divided into three main precincts – consisting of a central hub, home economics and responsible living – the design delivers the school’s vision of collaborative and specialist learning. These varied formal and informal learning areas are spread over multiple levels linking previously disconnected floors. New building orientation and curated façade openings immerse learners in their landscape with treetop views, natural light and ventilation. The new building was situated to ensure the retention of existing mature trees, while the raised pedestrian bridge addresses the challenging topography with an equitable and welcoming street presence.
