The Learning Hub, St Andrew's Anglican College
Peregian Springs, QLD
New build or refurbishment: New build
Architect: Wilson Architects
Project completed: 16/06/2016
The Learning Hub was designed for St Andrew's Anglican College - a rapidly-growing school on the Sunshine Coast. It incorporates primary and secondary school libraries, multiple collaborative teaching spaces, staff offices, professional development care, several student lounges and an expansive outdoor learning area.
The library is central to the Learning Hub, both literally and metaphorically. While it occupies prime accessible space on the ground floor, a key role of the library is to centralise a variety of services within the Hub. Students can choose from self-service to fully-assisted service points for IT, library and learning support, and have access to interview rooms, pods, and flexible furniture. Staff move around the space providing help as needed. Models such as this offer formal and informal opportunities for students and staff to interact, and are very efficient.
