Albert Park College — Environmental Arts Hub
Through a series of key design moves the heritage listed Naval Drill Hall and Post Office buildings have been transformed into an Environmental Arts Hub for 250 Year 9 students, 25 members of staff, artists in residence and local community members.
The unique curriculum and architectural setting called for the design of non‑traditional teaching spaces that celebrate the rare characteristics of the building to provide a creative and inspiring learning environment.
Although a complex project, involving multiple stakeholder groups, the project has delivered another life to two heritage buildings and is now a fabulous asset to both the College and the local community. Situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation.
