SACRED HEART COLLEGE

STAGE 1 - SENIOR VILLAGE

Through a Master planning process it was identified that a Senior Village was needed to create a more adult environment for yrs 10-12. This Senior Village will be initiated with the construction of a new 2 story building for year 10 that will later extend and connect to the adjacent Mercy Building (which will be refurbished) to provide enough space for the three year levels.

The buildings form reads as a simple structure interrupted with a ribbon that weaves in and out of the building and between the two floors. This ribbon creates a range a variation in space and forms functional joinery that can both open up or isolate areas.

To the south are spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, which will be framed and focused on at key points in the facade.
The weather conditions in Kyneton range from cold/ windy winters to hot summers and the external terraces provide a range of environments to protect students at different time of the year.

An integrated careers centre on the ground floor creates a focus for senior students and encourage them think about their futures options.
