A well designed learning space inspires creativity, productivity and efficient learning to support social, emotional and intellectual development. Students, teachers and the wider community will be energised and engaged with a well designed and adaptable space.

In comfortable spaces students feel at home to curl up and read a book, move freely within zones, utilise tiered seating for presentations and confidently participate.

educat i ng

Students benefit academically from social interaction with their peers. Adding fun and play into the learning environment facilitates this interaction, encouraging meaningful engagements. Break out zones are an important part of 21st Century learning, providing a physical space for this interaction, while open- plan informal spaces provide individualised learning environments to support collaborative activities.

engag i ng

Creating different zones will enhance adaptation to change and challenge spatial orientation. A chill zone allows for comfortable seating options, inviting and promoting engagement with curriculum, with projects and with peers.

STEAM HUB - ROKEBY HIGH SCHOOL , TAS

The project outline The project was to design an integrated environment to be used across the disciplines of Science,Technology, Engineering, Ar t, Design and Mathematics.The goal was to achieve a 21st Century learning space, enabling creative thinking through an inspiring and stimulating learning environment. Raeco used a colourful and eclectic mix of furniture to suppor t the establishment of this flexible learning environment. Rokeby wanted a space allowing for collaborative teaching and learning, and for students to interact in a manner that relaxed traditional notions of what a classroom should be.

outcome “The result is an open, vibrant learning space where the disciplines of STEAM education come together and teacher and students are no longer isolated through physical space or traditional classroom formats. Students and staff alike are thrilled with the result and learning outcomes are already being enhanced. We have instantly become a key school in Tasmania for STEAM education through our unique approach to teaching pedagogy and our spaces have received accolades as an excellent example of a progressive and innovative learning environment.”

MONASH UN I VERS I T Y CAULF I ELD, V I C

The project outline For this project, Raeco has worked with Hansen Yuncken. The project spans four levels of the Monash University Caulfield Library, delivering a blend of standard and “bespoke’ shelving. The Raeco team has supplied and installed their “Linea” metal shelving range, along with custom perforated metal bay end panels and dust covers. The unique design required the development of prototypes for approval before installation.

outcome The perforated “Bay End” panels instantly provide a distinctive look, and the choice of paint colour “Matt Canvas” is used in other Monash University group libraries. The result is an inviting environment for patrons using this facility.

22

The project outline The library spaces at the International School of Manila are large and open, broken into three separate divisional libraries. Two libraries downstairs with the third a floor above. The old spaces were basically gutted to allow for a brand new library design and to create purposeful learning spaces across all three divisions. The school wanted age appropriate, durable, flexible, and aesthetically pleasing furniture and shelving that would mesh well with the new spaces. The Project Services team at Raeco assisted the client through the design consultation and implementation process and were involved extensively in the interior design and colour co-ordination of the learning spaces.

outcome “We worked with Raeco to order all of our shelving and most of our library furniture in the total redesign of our three divisional libraries. We are very pleased with our shelving which is mobile and also provides ample space for front facing books. The colours of the furniture really pop in our space and are proving to be durable under constant heavy usage. ”

KELMSCOT T L I BRARY, WA

The project outline The Kelmscott Library had moved from their previous location on a busy street, back 50m into the local shopping centre. The foot traffic had increased through the move into the shopping centre, however they had a smaller space to work with. MKTD Design Group was engaged to create a boutique, cutting edge library.

outcome

Raeco used wedges instead of aisles to break up the collection of shelving.This was done so patrons could move through and engage with the destination. The library finds customers discover more when they have to walk through the different zones within the library. Hidden areas for customers to discover were created within the dynamic spaces, for example, there is a hidden coffee station. Wooden par titions were included to create private zones, which people can use as a quiet, isolated area. Kelmscott Library is really happy with the final result, and feel they have created a ‘wow’ factor.

The project outline

outcome “The Stage 3 Centre is designed to enable Stage based teaching; there is one class with 112 students and five or more teachers. The large open-plan space is differentiated primarily through furnishing, creating smaller areas for groups to experience individual work, collaborative work and direct instruction in groups from ten to 112 students. Rather than a highly-structured and regulated classroom that aims for compliance, this learning space aims for student engagement through the alignment of the furnished environment with the learning activity taking place.

I NABURRA SCHOOL , NSW

The Learning Commons is intended to provide space for students to engage in self-directed, individual or collaborative work. Students are able to exercise agency in their choice of location and furniture, whether selecting an individual desk, a booth, a high table or a lounge. Flexibility is the key, enabling students to arrange their workspace in a way that facilitates the activity of the moment. The Commons provides an experience akin to contemporary ter tiary education facilities.

The new classrooms have been furnished with a priority on flexibility, mobility and variety. Swivel chairs, semi-circular and rectangular tables, and lounges are all able to be easily deployed in a variety of configurations, as best meets the pedagogical agenda of the lesson.”

The project outline To provide a mobile solution that draws attention to the collection and not the shelves themselves. The project required shelving for both the fiction and non fiction collection within the secondary library.

outcome “Working with Chhaya and Trevor was excellent. They personally oversaw the construction of the shelves here in Singapore. The shelves themselves are an outstanding product; robust, mobile, and elegant. I could not be more pleased with Raeco’s service and shelves. General community opinion has been very agreeable. Students are content as are parents and staff.”

The project outline We wanted the oppor tunity to create both a community health library and a professional hub for local medical staff. The centre was to create an ambience of style and creativity to enhance the users’ experience with a series of interconnected spaces.

outcome “Thanks to the design exper tise of Raeco, our new library in a glass-encased, floating mezzanine floor of a nineteenth century heritage building, melds the old with the new, with grace and style. Natural light from the LED lights in the outside shell travels across the low-line, mobile shelving, allowing flexibility and clear line of sight across the whole library. On entering the space our clients gasp audibly before gravitating towards an area that suits them for the day. Double screen computers, comfor tably spaced along the perimeter benches, allow researchers to work efficiently, undisturbed by centralised activities. The shelves are interspersed with bright pink chairs, complementing the

muted heritage colours. The custom-designed reference desk allows stand-up or sit-down reference with wheelchair access. Study booths in the learning lounge entice and enclose those who want privacy for informal peer teaching. It is all about functionality with elegance, and through Raeco we’ve achieved a fine balance.”

MACQUAR I E REG I ONAL L I BRARY DUBBO, NSW

The project outline The refurbishment of the Macquarie Library incorporated existing shelving with new low profile mobile shelving, allowing for flexible spaces throughout the library. The zoning of the space creates a technology area at the front of the library, with soft seating areas near the full height glass windows, seminar rooms, and a children’s zone with face out picture book displays.The mobility of the shelving ensures spaces can be created for all special activities.

outcome The library underwent a complete refurbishment to create more spaces within the library for the public. Collection zones were re-configured to create seating areas within the collections. The response to the library’s new look has been positive, not only how the library looks but also with the new layout. There appears to be more space through clever design.

GERMAN SWI SS I NTERNAT I ONAL SCHOOL PR I MARY, HONG KONG

The project outline The project involved relocating from a temporary campus to a renovated building with additional extensions twice the size. The school was not keeping any old furniture and to keep costs down, wanted where possible to order locally Chinese-made furniture. However, as they also wanted to make a statement and give the new library a wow factor, they enlisted Raeco to visit their site and advise on utilizing statement furniture pieces within their space.

outcome

“Shastiq was extremely professional, positive and always available despite distance and time constraints. She understood budget limitations and came up with solutions that were acceptable to all levels of school involvement.We achieved the ‘wow’ factor with the Campfire Seating, the picture book shelving,Wave Seating and Pod Seating. We cer tainly wouldn’t have looked as good without these features. It is the pride of the school.”

St Hilda’s wanted an amazing learning space with curved shelving. Shelving was used to create quiet and group areas and this was supplemented by innovative furniture.The stylish exterior is reflected in the library shelving and bay end panels. The shelving uses individual mobile bays and a series of wedges to create curves and sweeping lines.

Assumpt i on col lege , V i c

The project outline The development of the Fouviere Centre enables ACK to provide a specialized learning environment for young men and women inYears 11 and 12, who are growing in independence and personal responsibility. As students enter their final phase of their secondary schooling, this centre should facilitate responsible decision-making and preparation for the less- structured world of ter tiary study and the workplace. The original convent structure, the former Sisters of Mercy Building (Shandon House) and the cloisters have cultural heritage significance for their association with early development of the religious teaching orders in Australia. These buildings form the historic core of Assumption College and have been identified as being of historic and architectural significance to Kilmore and the region.

Outcome The design has carefully removed many of the 1980s extensions and exposed the original cloisters and heritage building, which formerly housed the College student boarding facilities.The facility will now create a centrepiece for senior learning at Assumption College. The strength of the original architecture, combined with the cloisters and the historical connections this building has to the College, firmly grounds the underlying principles of senior learning in a firm reverence of tradition and pride. A sophisticated and adult environment will provide the foundations and hunger for lifelong learning.

outcome “Raeco’s ability to understand and interpret our needs to present a design which fully captured our brief was exceptional. From star t to finish their professionalism and level of service was second to none. We were kept informed of progress throughout the entire project and everything was delivered and installed on time. The result was a discovery learning space for our students that is modern, comfor table, innovative and sophisticated – all of which is a testament to Raeco’s ability to understand the needs of their customer.”

The project outline The Dudley Denny City Library wanted to create a modern space, designed and re-engineered to suit the library’s specific needs. Raeco worked closely with the customer and the architects they engaged to create a flow which showcased their collection.“Chill zones”were vitally impor tant.The library wanted to create an area where people felt comfor table in a modern space without losing the heritage feel of the building.

outcome The building called “The Dome” was given to the council so there was a huge impor tance to preserve the heritage of the building while conver ting the top floor into a library. Raeco provided all the shelving to suit the library’s specific needs and some contemporary furniture, assisting the team at Dudley Denny City Library to create a modern yet agile space that they are proud of. Raeco relocated all the books from the first location to the new premises, once the project was completed and since the refurbishment the library has seen an increase in customer numbers.

Albertus Magnus L i brary S i ena col lege , V i c

The Siena College Library was totally refurbished as part of a major building project at Siena College. A new three storey building was built at the rear of the school and the back of the library building late in 2014. The concept for the new facility was to bring all of the student services together in an attractive and multi-functional area on the ground floor. The challenges in designing the new library were to create separate learning zones for use by multiple classes, to manage the noise levels across the various learning spaces and to ensure that all of the fittings and furniture could be reconfigured easily for College functions.The furniture in the building is attractive, comfortable and totally flexible. All of the shelves and tables are on wheels so that the space can be reconfigured as required. The shelves are low to maximize the feeling of space in the area and wooden end panels add to the attractiveness of the space. Padded comfortable lounge chairs make the reading area a comfortable place for extended reading by students. nd w ooden end panels add to the attractiveness of the space.

“TheAlber tus Magnus Library is a comfor table, attractive and flexible space that is well-used and enjoyed by the College community.The computer lab has been a popular area for student researchers in class time, and is a homework hub before school, after school and in the recess and lunchtime breaks. The Classroom is a hub for students who are studying for tests and examinations, and is a quieter space for serious study.The Reading Area has been a popular and comfor table space in breaks for students, and a wide reading centre in class time.The various zones have been used as community gathering places and learning centres by students and staff alike. The rear zones have doubled as a foyer for school events, a venue for various functions and as a Green Room for drama and music performances. Students, staff and parents have enjoyed gathering, reading, relaxing and learning in the Library environment.”

The project outline The school wanted to rejuvenate the library by using Raeco’s Colosseum and ContourWave as centrepieces. These pieces provided extra shelving as well as visual interest in this library with a view. Letter Ottomans, Luna Ottomans and Laptop Chairs all added visual interest and functionality.

outcome “To refurbish the Library and make it more open, modern and wel- coming. We also wanted the space to be appealing to both Prepa- ratory and Secondary aged students. We wanted to choose furniture that would appeal to a wide range of ages and purposes. The laptop chairs have been a hit as well as the Colosseum.

We have a created a space which is very versatile and has a ‘wow’ factor.”

AMER I CAN I NTERNAT I ONAL SCHOOL OF BUCHAREST

The project outline We arranged a CEESA (Central and Eastern Europe School Association) conference featuring library consultant Kevin Hennah.We had him stay on for two days and he led with the conceptual design of the space.We also had a local architect who we met with numerous times to shape the current look of the library. Finally, we had some images from the Savanah College of Ar t and Design as inspiration for par ts of the design. The school director was very helpful and also gave good input.

outcome “We created a welcoming space for older students.The mezzanine holds fiction and has no tables, making it more of a drop-in space. The lower section is very flexible, with light weight tables and soft furniture and the Raeco shelving on wheels. This allows us to use the space for a variety of functions.We are pleased with the results, it does not look like a library and should be well ahead for several years. I also like the small study spaces for quiet work.”

The project outline As a result of the redevelopment, patrons can ‘learn discover access’ within the LINC which has been designed for experiences and has moved beyond a transactional view of the client. This has been achieved through the selection of furniture, infrastructure, the layout of physical collections, a café, varying seating arrangements, integration of technology for desktop & mobile devices,Wi-Fi access and sophisticated interior design. All of these elements have enabled the LINC staff to leverage the physical space and create client service experiences that are engaging, positive, safe, respectful, and contemporary, delivered with a sense of pride.The impact of embedding in every possible way the paradigms of the ‘Community Living Room’ and ‘Breakdown Hierarchy’ was significant and clients and agencies in the greater Launceston communities are voting with their feet, physically and virtually.

outcome

L AUNCESTON L I NC , TAS

The LINC has moved from a focus on collections to social engagement with content and learning.

“The overall visual impact is of a welcoming, contemporary, safe space for people to engage, meet, chill, read, learn, be noisy, be quiet and just be.The ability to meld a corporate branding approach with the humanity of a community living room has been a significant visual impact achievement.Young adults have their own area and its location and layout were informed through engaging with local agencies who understand the broad range of social approaches for such a diverse target group. The advice was included in designing a contemporary space, slightly “off the beaten track” within the building. They enabled social gathering, conversation, hanging out, access to multimedia, Wi-Fi and charge bars, without the heavy-handedness of direct supervision of the past.”

Mount st Joseph g i rls ’ col lege , V i c

The project outline Mount St Joseph Girls’College Learning Resource Centre provides the College community with a contemporary learning hub, meeting place and events space. Prior to extensive renovations, the space was par titioned which prevented the flow of natural light. The space is now a beautiful open area where natural light filters through the shelves due to their strategic placement angled for ease of access and flow of traffic. The school now has the flexibility to re-arrange the shelving units to suit special events and learning needs as they choose mobile and light-weight furniture. The choice of colours throughout the centre is balanced between the calming influence of greens on the floor with the whites of the walls. This allows more light to be directed at the book collection and the work benches between the shelves.The charcoal grey shelving enhance, by way of contrast, the colours of the collection on display.

outcome “The college now has a functional and user friendly space where the students enjoy coming in to study.The shelving defines the space. Great use of display shelving throughout the library provides easy access to books where we can feature new and upcoming books. We are very happy with the final outcome and thank Raeco for their guidance and assistance.”

The project outline The opening of the new Library in 2015 established the space as a central hub for learning within the School. The Library sits on the same site as the previous library which dated back to the 1970s, but with a considerably increased footprint. The design brief was to provide flexible learning and reading spaces for students from Preparatory to Year 12, within an environment that reflected the aesthetic of the building in which it is located. Whilst the Library is extraordinarily beautiful, the design also ensures that it is imbued with a sense of calm. From the first time students were able to use the Library spaces, their delight has been evident and their behaviour exemplary. A number of senior students have told staff that it is just like a university library as it is “a grown up space.”

outcome “Usage levels have been consistently high since the Library opened to students. Lunchtimes see every seat occupied by students working collaboratively in groups or sitting in the nor th-facing reflection area enjoying a book and the view. What has been interesting is the way students have embraced sitting at the large tables (under the Atrium and in the Ar ts Alcove) with students they may not necessarily know and working companionably side by side. Teachers are increasingly booking classes into the designated learning areas and have commented upon what a delightful and productive environment these spaces offer.”

It has trebled the public floor space, allowed for reading and study areas and provided staff with a workroom. A community meeting room is available outside normal business hours as well as a smaller interview room. The library is situated in such a location that the outlook takes in views of the lake and parkland.

outcome “Face-out display is maximized throughout the library, allowing the collection to be showcased.While some stacks are in the traditional layout, there has been oppor tunity to create special areas such as the DVD/audio stacks. Having the shelving on castors has meant that the reading area can easily be cleared for events, at very little effor t from staff. Interesting and comfor table furniture dispersed throughout the library creates a user-friendly atmosphere.”

outcome “The sundial layout around the campfire seating creates a striking view as you come down the stairs and into the library.The contrast of white and charcoal shelving means the collection and technology pop within the space. Low level shelving allows views out to the amphitheatre and park.

AMER I CAN SCHOOL L I BRARY LEARN I NG CENTRE , HONG KONG

The project outline As Hong Kong’s newest school, American School Hong Kong was confronted with the challenge of refurbishing an old building to serve as a place for STEAM collaboration, requiring flexible space within their Library Learning Centre. A clean design with soft lines plus mobility to quickly open up the central floor were key components in choosing a designer and furniture provider. Retaining the term “Library” first in the name of the space was a nod to the tradition and still-present impact of resources in a hard format. In par tnering with Raeco, ASHK wanted a provider who could assist in striking a balance between evolving practice and proven approaches to learning.

outcome “The overall results speak for themselves! The ASHK learning community of teachers, parents and especially students have engaged with the LLC and speak highly of the inspiration they feel in the open design. New ways of doing things surface weekly as a result of the flexibility inherent in the space. Raeco was instrumental in carrying out a turn key project from design, delivery and install of product that ASHK will leverage for years to come.”
