The Brief

Despite being a relatively new school, some of Melbourne Girls College’s facilities were under-utilised and unfit for purpose. The school engaged B2 to transform the existing library and adjacent learning spaces, to create a contemporary new learning environment.

The Solution

B2’s design solution involved the construction of a new extension and reconfiguration of existing spaces to better connect the indoor and outdoor environments. This provided the school community with contemporary new learning facilities that include:

  • Resources Centre, including library, study, multi-purpose space, media and presentation spaces.
  • Landscaped outdoor space with large external deck.

The building works involved the:

  • Construction of a new extension.
  • Reconfiguring and upgrading existing spaces.
  • Landscaping and construction of an external deck.

"The team have detailed knowledge of the latest pedagogical research which ensures their designs maximise learning and teaching outcomes for students and educators."
