Blue Gum Pre-School Hackett
Blue Gum School provides a truly unique learning environment. Formed by a group of teachers and parents who were disappointed with the one-size fits all education approach, they cater to children’s individual needs and allow new models of communication, challenges and experiences.
After in-depth communication and exciting discovery, we recognised that outdoor adventure and exploring is an important part of Blue Gum’s education program. By collaborating with timber craftsman Gino Monteleone from Select Custom Joinery, we implemented natural materials and organic shapes, which allowed their environmental focus to be brought forward, as well as create a welcoming and interesting interior to suit the holistic teaching.
To help an old building become comfortable, thermal break double glazed doors and windows have been installed, along with coloured glass to keep the ordinary extraordinary.
