PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The brief for this BER-funded project was to construct a new library and refurbish the existing library as a new staff room. It also included the construction of a new lift to improve accessibility of the existing facilities.

 

The new library building is centrally located on the school site and adjoins existing facilities to the East & West side, providing under-cover walkways and direct access from the car park. The sanitary facilities are located on the lower ground floor with the Library, resources and staff areas located on the upper ground level at the carpark level. Creating a fun and engaging learning environment for the students was a priority. This was achieved by maximising the level of natural light and selecting vibrant, primary colours for the interior finishes.

 

The refurbishment works of the existing library included the addition of new sanitary facilities, a kitchen and dining/lounge area which could also be used for staff meetings and small functions. The existing windows provided lovely views of the Perth skyline so the kitchen, intended as a focal point of the space, was located such as to benefit from this outlook.
