The Centre for Senior Learning was created through the conversion of two “retail shops” on Gilles Street. Interconnecting all levels of the existing buildings with light shafts and circulation  created ‘open plan’ learning spaces and learning pods, tutorial / meeting spaces, conference / common areas, a careers centre, a student kitchen and the sub school administration offices.

The design response was to retain as much of the buildings as possible embracing the raw and rough nature of the existing structure to create an industrial aesthetic for the learning environment.

The School Principal Anne Dunstan in her opening address noted;

          “.. it is an adult space with flexible furniture options; shared breakout spaces; ubiquitous technology; smaller pods for reflective work       or collaborative enquiry and sight lines and vistas connecting us to our city and to each other.  It reflects trends in learning and working environments beyond our school.  The intention is openness, flexibility, function and equity – students and educators working together to learn and teach.….. It has been most evident that all of the thought and rigorous design that was put into its development have reaped rewards as our students have engaged seamlessly with all elements of the facility”
