“In creating the concept for the new city high school, our desire was to create a contemporary and innovative learning environment that has a strong connection to the surrounding landscape,” the architect said.

Cox revealed that the school also includes flexible learning spaces that are connected through an “active atrium” over five levels. The STEM and inter-disciplinary focus of the school is placed on display with an exhibition space on the ground level, alongside a series of learning pods in the central atrium space.

The internal space has been designed as a continuation of the external landscape, aiming for an flowing connection that enhances the student learning experience.
