Inverloch Primary School (DEECD)
Bayview Avenue, Inverloch
The innovative new Inverloch Primary School is a canvas; it is a front, a fence and an invitation to draw the community into an activated shared landscape. Through the dark fronted feature entry reveals a contrasting light inland landscape, generous externalised circulation and outdoor learning focusing on a feature court.
New buildings are organised in a linear fashion. Class spaces are clustered to form ‘learning houses’ interconnected by covered ways. The design celebrates its place by adopting the form and function of nearby Anderson Inlet, funnelling access through a central main entry. An internal courtyard is a literal translation of the Inverloch coastline to create a seat-edge to the outdoor assembly area.
