Emerald Secondary College
The Modernisation and upgrading of five school buildings at Emerald Secondary College for the VSBA aims to increase connectivity in the school. The design interconnects flexible classrooms and adapts existing circulation as a connective interior street where collaboration and informal learning thrive. Across 2,700 sqm, including the library, specialised classrooms and the administration building, existing built fabric is recalibrated into a new beating heart for staff and students alike.
New learning nooks and breakout edge spaces encourage informal learning spaces and inspire social interactions. Flexible teaching spaces will allow for team teaching to assist in more engaged, inclusive and collaborative environment.
Staff wellness is highlighted by connective reconfiguration of the administration building to provide a ‘town square’ for staff and teachers; a central hub to meet and collaborate.
