Mentone Grammar Creativity Centre

The Mentone Grammar Creativity Centre brings the Performing and Visual Arts faculties together with Food and Materials Technology in one facility. The brief from the school outlined the desire to encourage dynamic and integrated creativity across all disciplines and the sharing of these creative outcomes with the broader school community.  The design encompasses a central chasm through the building, encouraging physical and visual interaction between the various disciplines. A series of voids and multi-level spaces through the centre of the building allow this interaction to occur and unites the community occupying the building. The learning lounges and gallery occupying this central space give students a chance to mingle, learn and be inspired by others.
