  • Located on the coast of north west Tasmania, Sacred Heart Primary School has a proud history. The current school master plan is in the form of an ‘H’ with classrooms in the wings.

  • This project involved re-master planning the school, and later, the upgrading of several parts of the building as part of the Federal Government’s Economic Stimulus Plan.

The physical design intent was to provide a new entry and link-way. This gave life to our design narrative – to create a new ‘heart’ to the Campus, providing a central space connecting both indoors and outdoors.

The use of strong colour within the architecture was used not only as a design tool, but also establishes confident identity and signage.

  • The addition of several meeting pods provide flexibility within the teaching spaces, catering for a variety of teaching styles. Each classroom now includes operable walls to create opportunities for open plan teaching.

  • Careful landscaping of the external areas creates seamless connections between the indoor and outdoor environment. This keeps with the evolving pedagogy, where learning occurs through experience.
