Great work to all who were involved in the recently completed Senior Hub at Rivermount College, Yatala!
Students and staff are loving their new learning spaces and plaza which has become the new heart of Rivermount's Senior School.
Rivermount College’s buildings, clustered along a natural ridgeline, have been situated to maximise central green spaces. Novum’s involvement has been to strengthen an already beautiful and well laid-out campus, providing much needed social and learning nodes for the senior and middle schools.
The new Senior Hub supports contemporary learning by providing interconnectable learning spaces that give students and teachers ultimate flexibility. Using glass operable walls, learning spaces can be expanded, sub-divided, or opened up to connect to the outdoors.
“Fishbowl” style glass rooms put Rivermount’s progressive pedagogy on display and provide opportunities for collaboration and community-building activities. The school’s hosting of lunchtime and after-hours community events showcase learning, performances, student work, culture, and the College’s rich history.
The Senior Hub’s soaring roofline, high ceilings, and expanses of glass provide naturally lit, unencumbered spaces for flexible and collaborative learning suitable for Rivermount’s Secondary students.
Acoustic treatments to the ceilings and walls, and glazed operable walls, will also allow the College to comfortably sub-divide learning areas with minimal distraction.
We are truly honoured to have been part of such an important project for the College and look forward to sharing more of the work we have completed there.
