Richmond High School

The Richmond development is the second vertical school project ADCO have recently secured for the Victorian Department of Education.

The facility, designed by Hayball Architects will cater for 650 students and will be built over two sites. The first, a multi-purpose facility at 16 Gleadell Street, and the other an academic precinct at 280 Highett Street, which will provide general purpose teaching spaces, four competition-grade netball courts and community facilities.

The state of the art Highett Street facility features a central atrium to provide light and air, and is designed to focus on community blending and interaction. The library, performing arts spaces and communal eating areas will be located on the ground floor and the teaching areas located on the upper levels and external learning areas will visible to the north.

The school will also include outdoor cooking facilities and an edible productive garden included as a key facet of its landscape design. The landscape spaces will also allow usage for community exhibitions and functions.
