Parkhurst State School
Building on a strong relationship with a passionate principal, the Parkhurst State School Resource Centre project transformed a standard brief into an inspirational and dynamic teaching and learning environment.
Built under the Commonwealth Government’s Building the Education Revolution program, the design was a direct response to the school’s vision to create an engaging space for twenty-first century learning.
While delivering the required multi-purpose lecture theatre and IT lab, the resource centre creates a highly contemporary campus image, reflecting the school’s philosophy of partnering educational innovation with technology. Exploring the idea of the contemporary veranda as a social gathering space and place maker, the building enjoys an active engagement with the broader community as well as the school campus.
Arkhefield’s design for the resource centre has provided a dynamic and versatile facility that creates a striking and welcoming first impression for Parkhurst State School.
