The holistic redevelopment of facilities for the Reception Learning Community at Tatachilla Lutheran College comprised the gut, rework and expansion of an existing building.

The design intent was for child-centred, flexible spaces that connected with the outdoors with generous verandahs. The south facing skylights were retained and extended. They provide ample natural light and ventilation.

The remodelled building provides a range of comfortable, connected and purposeful activity settings. Existing loose furniture was reused. The materials, colours and finishes reflect the regional vernacular architecture of the renowned McLaren Vale wine region.
