Gilson College Year 3-8

Gilson College, situated on the outer north western fringe of Melbourne, is a Christian co-educational school with a need to expand their campus for a growing school population. The construction of the building was based on a modular prefabricated design that minimised the disruption to the school by reducing the construction time on site, whilst allowing for a self-contained building that provided flexibility and encouraged learning and working together. Three modules, each containing two general learning spaces, are positioned around a central gathering area. Withdrawal pods between learning spaces provide students the opportunity for small group or individual learning activities. Embedded in the centre of the building is the staff workspace, facilitating greater interaction between staff and students.
