The 1650sqm 5 Star Green Star building includes wind scoop ‘fairings’ on the south elevation which direct ventilation into teaching spaces. The expanding scale of these elements echoes the experience of accelerating out of town into the country. The built contours in the landscape plan relate to viewlines from the parallelogram classrooms. The external shell folds down to create external classrooms of diverse spatial qualities, at the same questioning the Australian veranda typology.

As well as interacting with the regions climate, the project also creates a functional link with the Leongatha Education Precinct. By co-locating the Institute with secondary and special schools and other training providers, the building establishes educational pathways that give a variety of choices to students in the South Gippsland and Bass Coast regions.
