biscoe wilson | architects were commissioned to design and document a multipurpose hall as part of the Building the Education Revolution (BER) Program.
This generous multi purpose hall was designed to accommodate a range of sporting and general school functions, and additionally provide a space for the community.
The sloping land enabled a lower level undercroft to be utilised. This space acts as a breezeway link from the main school entry down to the oval. Either side of the breezeway, additional spaces for offices, a sport store, uniform shop and a music room were also included.
The main steel framed hall is clad in a mix of tilt up concrete panels at lower levels and light weight fibrous cement and metal sheeting on upper walls. The louvers, glass and translucent roof and wall sheeting have produced a naturally lighted hall that seldom requires artificial lighting throughout the day.
A fanning steel awning over the entry provides an iconic signature to the school.
