Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership – IDEA 2020

Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership

Meticulous restoration of most of the entire existing building was required. The design concept emerged from the educational theories of the brief and former school’s significant heritage features. New additions were designed to be complementary, yet clearly distinguish between past and present. Perhaps most significantly, the entire lecture theatre was positioned underground. This step safeguarded the new extension from adding excessive visual bulk and disproportion to the original built form.
