The Currajeen Learning Centre is a dedicated VCE centre, including year 12 social spaces. The original 1960s brick convent building was converted to student space in the 1990s. Williams Ross have worked with CLC to refurbish the building over several stages, with the final major extension and refurbishment completed in 2016.
The old bathrooms were converted to Seminar spaces accessed off learning spaces, and learning areas opened up to the circulation spaces with new internal glazing.
The final extension provided two additional learning spaces, three seminar spaces and an enlarged assembly space to accomodate the growing cohort of VCE students in the centre.
Refurbishment of the Year 12 social space included a new kitchen, seating and vibrant colour scheme. This space opens up to the existing courtyards which were also renewed through the project.
Opportunities for seating and outdoor learning spaces were an important part of the design and building frontage.
