A masterful plan for effective space usage
A master planning project for Sydney’s International Grammar School is helping the school maximise its space usage and to better engage students and staff. Led by UTS Professor Deborah Ascher Barnstone, a team comprised of UTS academics and Master of Architecture students provided an in-depth stakeholder consultation and site analysis process to understand the school’s current and future user needs. They examined space usage patterns in the context of current trends in educational design and general master-planning principles, delivering a series of proposals to revitalise common areas and other spaces across the inner-city campus. The first report recommendations are currently being implemented, with the rest to be rolled out over the next few years.
