BELLEVUE HILL PUBLIC SCHOOL
Bellevue Hill Public School is located on a hill adjacent to Bellevue Park, which overlooks Rose Bay and Sydney Harbour to the north, and Bondi Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the east. The school is housed in a double story brick building, which was built in 1924.
GroupGSA prepared alternative concept design options following the completion of an Educational Principles study with New Learning Environments. These principles were endorsed by the DEC Project Steering Committee for guidance in the preparation of alternative design concepts for the proposed accommodation.
The preferred design provides a strong integrated extension of the teaching spaces on all levels. The spaces contribute greatly to the learning environment and will be flexible and allow customisation to suit the range of learning styles and teaching methods practiced in the school. Site conditions, area availability, terrain and landscaping influenced the design significantly and led to a four level proposal that minimises ground level works, reduction of playground area and tree removal. The upper levels are similar in layout and connect well with the teaching spaces of the existing school.
