Education: St Johns Richmond
St Johns School engaged Luttrell Pyefinch architects to complete a master plan for the site. The implementation of the master plan provided the school with upgrades to the school administration, a library, new canteen and multipurpose hall.
The hall design was developed in collaboration with the client
to derive a solution suitable for the specific needs of the school community.
The design responds to the heritage context of the site. The building provides a large light filled space which is well used by the school for a range of activities including whole of school assemblies and presentation events. The project includes accessibility for a wide range of users and circulation for use by the public internal to the schools boundary. Covered areas are incorporated to support external activities.
The main space considers accommodation of a range of possible activities and has considered durable surfaces and the management of sound within the space.
