South Oakleigh College
Architecture architecture has designed a masterplan and first stage buildings for South Oakleigh College in Melbourne’s South East. The college is part of the Oakleigh Education Plan, which is a collaborative initiative between the College, Oakleigh South Primary School and Huntingdale Primary School to raise student engagement, achievement, wellbeing outcomes and community perceptions and creating academic drive for all students.
A new Science building will be the first of three buildings in the school’s masterplan that will form the new STEAM precinct, while the expansion of the school’s gymnasium into a contemporary competition-grade facility allows for greater use by the school and broader local community.
The proposed works redefine the open space between campus buildings, resulting in the creation of a strong campus heart – the ‘Agora’ community courtyard containing a variety of outdoor learning environments, seating and gathering spaces. Both new building works and the Agora present strongly to the public via Bakers Rd and Centre Rd frontages, confirming a new era for the school, and a face that consolidates the school’s contemporary excellence.
