Ocean View College Redevelopment

Delivered as part of the State Government Capital Works Program, the redevelopment included refurbishment works and a new purpose built Performing Arts facility.

Refurbishment works involved the design of new general learning areas, teacher preparation spaces, new art labs and a digital design suite. Operable walls create collaboration spaces and movable, stackable furniture allows for maximum flexibility.

The Tutuyarlu Performing Arts building’s design takes inspiration from a stage curtain, creating a dynamic facade that acts as a beacon at night. Clever internal planning provides flexible spaces for teaching and performance uses with connection to the surrounding landscaping design.

The bold architectural statement improves street presence as a new focal point for the school and makes a positive statement about public education.
