Margaret Ames Centre, Immanuel College, Nova Gardens SA

Maintaining their position at the forefront of developments in education paradigms, responding to the needs of the global village in a technology driven society and preparing senior students for potential tertiary educational environments were Immanuel College’s major drivers for the design of the Margaret Ames Centre.

The plan form for the new building successfully expands upon and integrates with the existing senior school spaces allowing the project to meet the growing spatial and educational needs of the College. Designed over two levels, the main entrance and administration areas address the main oval and present a dynamic and bold public face. This positioning allows greater connections with new multi-levelled pedestrian links to adjacent buildings.

The new building embraces a modern innovative teaching philosophy which is research-driven, active and student centred. Learning spaces are both formal and informal, promoting creativity and flexibility, and allowing for multiple purposes concurrently so that students may undertake a range of activities as individuals or groups.

The complex and fluid shapes of the building forms, including the sculpturally shaped atriums create dynamic and light-filled breakout spaces, which combined with the integration of the latest digital technology contribute to uplift this building as an inspirational educational facility.
