McDowall State School – GLA Building

Biscoe Wilson Architects were commissioned to design and document a building containing 8 General Learning Areas for the McDowell State School as part of the Building the Education Revolution (BER) program. The three level building incorporates northern facing General Learning Areas (GLAs) on the upper two stories and covered undercroft to the ground level. Generous Outdoor Learning Areas (OLAs) were developed to the north. Single room width classrooms promote natural lighting and ventilation. Practical learning ares were incorporated into each classroom.
