Mentone Grammar School
Designed by Kneeler Architects, the innovative design incorporates a 450 seat theatre, visual arts studios, a recording studio, active learning zones and courtyards, and a spectacular gallery space. The cutting-edge two-level centre is the school’s largest development yet, designed to complement its existing learning facilities.
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.
