A new learning commons: capturing the heart of the school

The Wilderness School Learning Commons project involved the refurbishment of existing buildings to create a new learning space for Wilderness students and a striking front entrance for the school.

Constructed in a live environment over three stages, the project utilised two natural products not commonly used on school buildings – sandstone and bronze – to create a natural, soft, and welcoming streetscape that complements its leafy surrounds.

High quality finishes and innovative functionality were both critical to the success of this project. With a robust consultative approach, the Sarah team ensured both were achieved to exceedingly high standards, resulting in a prestigious learning space that the entire Wilderness community can be proud of.
