LORDS Student Learning Hub and Administration
The Learning Hub and Administration is a place making building, representing a new centrepiece for LORDS students, staff and community. The facilities represent the educational desire for quality learning and work spaces for both students and staff.
The Master Planning process highlighted the need for a new Administration space and Learning Hub. Meeting rooms, office spaces, flexible hot desks, welcoming reception and waiting areas on the ground floor represent a significant change from the demountable building LORDS had outgrown. The all age group Learning Hub on the first floor takes advantage of the north facing outlook over the eucalyptus forest. Students and staff are visually connected to the eucalyptus canopies from the moment you enter the Learning Hub. The flexible learning lounge acts the centre piece on the first floor and is break out space for makers spaces, flexible classrooms and focused learning spaces. The flexible learning lounge provides a space for traditional library resources, group reflection and individual study. Separating junior students from senior students through deliberate furniture selections whilst maintaining visual connection to the tree canopies outside.
