The Burgmann school campus at Gungahlin is divided into two areas separated by a large, landscaped stormwater swale. One side is the junior school, resource centre, chapel, and main administration area. The junior school side is low scale with separated buildings and more suburban and rural in nature. One the other side is the senior school which is more urbane and larger scale to match the larger scale of the students and form a link to future progression to work and university.
This general-purpose learning centre helps form a link to future study through its open format and large multiuse areas. Its external form is larger (two-storeys) and has integrated learning pods that are expressed on the outside. The building continues the learning cycle in sustainable design through natural ventilation, thermal mass, water storage, recycled materials and large amounts of natural daylight.
