Project Overview

This project was part of the Victorian PPP for the development of 11 new schools where the architects involved have developed a series of designs which embrace and reinforces Victorian contemporary teaching and learning practices. The utilisation of educational experts and practitioners to workshop, review and comment on the spatial relationships, design proposals and practicality of the intended facilities throughout the planning phase has ensured that the finished buildings are innovative, creative and will meet the educational requirements of teachers and students. In the case of Kororoit Primary School strong connections with the Local government Authority leading to the inclusion of kindergarten and community swimming pool facilities have enhanced the underlying theme of developing new school facilities based on a model of a small town servicing new developing areas of Melbourne.
