Mt eden mixed-use commercial / residential alterations
This project involved incorporating a residential apartment within an existing commercial space. Dealing with the inherent challenges of a mixed use space, we looked to create a visual connection through a series of playful shapes. The mezzanine apartment living space combines together functional everyday elements to suit the client’s urban lifestyle.

This project involved altering the interior of the existing library and computer technology suite, creating a new ‘integrated learning environment’ (ile), now called the schools Learning Hub. We collaborated closely with the school, designing a multifunctional, inspirational space for the children, teachers & families to enjoy.
“On reflection of my day, can I just say…Thanks teachers. When I went into the learning hub for five minutes this is what I saw…A year one teacher doing assessment on one of her kids in the learning hub Space. Boys who are graduating this year sardined in the Hui pod playing Lego. Senior boys and girls practising their poetry recitals in the viewing hub on the stage to each other for the upcoming competition. A girl on the computer in the tech hub doing work., while the boys lay on the green screen stage on their Crome books. …The LIT teacher doing something so exciting with a group in her office the kids had smiles a mile wide. Year 4s choosing books and one little girl in a reading nook tucked away quietly reading. I said to …………, is it ok if I just cry cause I’m so happy? Thanks for making a vision of learning a reality guys ” Nikki Urlich. Deputy Principal
