Caloundra City School
The Caloundra City Private School Multimedia Centre is a significant building in the evolution of the campus’ facilities and sense of community and identity.
Constructed as part of the BER funding program, the building fulfills the schools need for a traditional library and then extends the typology to address the needs of students and teachers in the 21st Century. Group Learning Area, Technology Rooms, Junior Reading Hubs and an IT Hub are all contained in the building which has also become a focal point of the students social interaction.
Housing all these needs in one building proved challenging. By employing clever use of technology, movable storage shelving as privacy screen, operable walls to close and extend spaces and varying floor levels, the uses of the building are clearly defined, creating a synergy of spaces.
