Reservoir Primary School Stage 2 Upgrade and Modernisation

DesignInc has reimagined the life of Reservoir Primary School with a master plan that revitalises the campus’ school heart—coalesced by new buildings and outdoor areas. A new STEAM wing, music pavilion, and refurbished heritage building culminate to create a vibrant learning environment in Melbourne’s north.

The refurbishment transforms the original 1920s school building into a new administration hub with reconfigured and refurbished general learning spaces that offer a variety of innovative direct and indirect learning areas.

A new music pavilion, designed to house both the music and OSHC programs, adds to the school’s appeal. Positioned at the school entrance, this pavilion seamlessly connects with the Stage 1 gymnasium, becoming an inviting community hub out of school hours for a variety of functions.

The STEAM building has innovation and engagement embedded in every space. Connected to the main building, the two-storey STEAM wing combines contemporary teaching spaces for science, art, and food technology with the library and learning spaces, sure to motivate learners.
