We were the International Architect for the design of a 92,000 sq. ft. American international high school that features interior courtyards, informal study and scattered library, dining locations and terraces on both floors and kitchen. Because of the tight site, the 2 full sized gyms are lifted over the required parking. The Fitness Recovery Centre was a key strategic part of the Australian Olympic Committee’s athlete preparation for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The exterior materials are steel panels, wood-board framed concrete and glass. This project was completed in 2007.
