  • Project Details
  • This project forms an important part of the masterplan by commencing the new Upper Terrace. This will provide covered access across the campus; linking the junior and senior schools. The terrace will be formalised as a northern concrete and timber colonnade to provide additional comfort and warmth to the new and characteristically Radford building.

    In a native landscape setting, this collaborative hybrid building includes four important functions: flexible learning space for two senior school year levels, a student services hub, college functions space, and secondary school reception with executive area.

    The total floor area is approximately 2000sqm. Each floor level includes six learning spaces and large open learning area. Acoustics and thermal comfort is carefully controlled to allow differing uses between floors. The majority of walls are operable to allow creation of spaces varying between 70sqm and 650sqm.
