Riverside Primary School Redevelopment

The redevelopment of Riverside Primary School represented an opportunity for the school’s facilities to be redeveloped into positive, productive and supported learning experiences, which encourage students towards lifelong learning. Riverside Primary is a high profile public school in a competitive catchment area. This was a complex project with many considerations around capacity, expansion and best utilization of existing buildings.

This project involved the construction of new General Learning Areas that encourage and support enquiry based learning as well as modification and rationalization of existing learning areas to open up cramped environments and supports students with higher needs. A new Student Support Centre incorporates a Student Kitchen and new senior staff offices and staff room was also created. The overall design focus for this project was to integrate light, openness and easy outdoor access to all areas.
