Positioned to respect and feature a large existing oak tree adjacent to the entrance, a raised canopy provides a gateway to other parts of the campus and reinforces the central stair and circulation pathway through this terraced school.
The Commerce Centre at Nelson College embodies the school’s vision for a modern learning environment to educate and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs in.
The facility consists of specialist classrooms, standard classrooms, leadership and seminar rooms, and staff amenities. A contemporary architectural language differentiates the building from the others in the school, with inspirational forms and spaces to foster collaboration, learning and innovation.
A simple and efficient exterior is articulated with sculptural folded screens which provide shade to the north elevation, while a generous canopy signals and shelters the entry.
