Modernisation of listed Heritage Building

A classic old bicycle shed, listed on the Heritage Register, has been sensitively refurbished and modernised to create a unique multi-purpose learning area.

Key design features of the old building have been preserved and enhanced:  The raised floating roof is improved with glass infill panels accentuating its hovering quality.

Unique sliding panel doors, no longer conforming with OHS requirements, are retained in a semi-open position with the operating mechanisms on display for all to see and appreciate how things used to be.

The new area inside sees a contemporary learning environment with accented resilient floor and kitchen/wet area, supported with mobile benches for ultimate flexibility.

AV is integrated with display panels on walls, all providing the necessary support for a variety of learning needs.

A suspended ceiling softens the noise, keeping the space manageable and comfortable.

Enriching spaces. Enriching Lives.
