Rangi Ruru Girls School: Blue Skies Project
Following devastating 2010/ 2011 earthquakes in Christchurch, this 125 year old, independent school commissioned the development of a visionary master plan process to regenerate most of their buildings. In association with McIldowie Partners, we took the opportunity to create 21st century learning spaces that embrace collaborative, informal. self-paced and structured learning. To date five buildings have been completed including a new science block and a strking library (Gibson Centre) which now forms the learning hub of the campus. A music and drama school, including a small theatre, was the most recently completed project. Upton Architects provided key technical support and led the Building Consent process for all projects.
