Biscoe Wilson Architects were commissioned to design and document a Multi-purpose Hall and Resource Centre for Kawungan State High School as part of the Building the Education Revolution Program (BER).
The Kawungan State High School is located in Hervey Bay in South-East Queensland.
The medium size multi-purpose hall has been designed for a variety of ball sports and for general school and community use. An eastern annexe contains an office, amenities, canteen, and foyer for school and public uses. Large store rooms have been included to the west for housing sports equiment and removable stage and furniture.
The second project is a library which includes resource areas, meeting rooms, staff areas, and flexible teaching spaces. Clerestory windows promote cross ventilation and natural lighting.
