TAURANGA GIRLS COLLEGE - ENGLISH BLOCK & LIBRARY REFURBISHMENT
Completed under Graham Price, Design Director at a previous practice
Tauranga Girls’ College is a large high school with over 1600 students. A number of buildings at the school required upgrading and refurbishment and two of the most important projects were the refurbishment of the English Block and Library.
The team worked with the school on both projects simultaneously, developing innovative solutions that meet the school’s requirements while remaining within budget constraints.
The Library is one of the buildings that forms the public face of the school. Inspiration for the design of the new entry and solar / privacy screens came from the mature trees along the road frontage and the dappled light of their foliage.
