The New Year 7 building at WSC provided unique challenges to provide facilities that enabled the connection of the sloping campus levels. A new splitlevel classroom building provided a HUB for year 7 students entering the school and the ‘Transitions’ themed integrated artwork seeks to inspire students and welcome them to the College. The key design features were to embrace natural light and connection with the landscape. The roof lights and transparent internal glass partition walls have successfully provided an open feel with connection to the bush setting at all times, whilst verandahs provide shade and protection and overall site improvements were made to address the level of universal access across a very challenging site.
The College principal has been an avid supporter of the campus upgrades and attests to the significant impact the new facility has had on the school community. “The impact of the beautiful building they designed has been to support improvements in many aspects of the school’s performance; enrolments, attendance, academic results and, in particular, our standing in the community.” – Pauline White (Principal)
