The brief identified a need to create an environment which could facilitate a number of after school care activities, provide breakout spaces for social gatherings and events, improve the aesthetic quality of the space, promote sustainable design principles and meet statutory equal access requirements.
The design integrates an elevated bluestone paved deck with rainwater tanks below for irrigation purposes. Lush green plantings are used to soften fences and building lines and add texture to OOSH play areas. Custom seating, meandering pathways and fencing to the entry and supervised areas break up the landscape surrounds into distinct spaces.
The contemporary design response to the outdoor site deliberately contrasts the historic architectural composition of the music hall. This intentional opposition and juxtaposition of styles highlights the building’s profile and emphasises its beauty.
