Technology Block, Taradale High School

Completed

2002

Location

Taradale

Studio

Napier

This project consisted of an extensive upgrade of four existing technology spaces to provide six new teaching spaces. The existing building has been heavily reconstructed and absorbs additional new spaces to meet the flexibility and inter-spatial activity demands of the modern technologies and to respond to┬álearning methods. The main building has been treated externally to make a ┬Ĺtechnological statement through external material finishes reflecting the activity occurring within. Excitement has been generated internally through colour usage, materials patterning, and slightly eccentric plan modeling. The success of the remodeling has been recognized by some of the other schools in the region basing their current Technology Block projects on the Taradale High School project.
