robert bateman secondary school student plaza
embracing the outdoors
recreating a space designed to serve multiple functions
Existing student gathering area is located in the back of the main building and is underutilized due to lack of seating, overgrown plants, and deterioration of old paving materials. The landscape division of Station One Architects was commissioned to recreate this area into multi-layered, expandable, and programmable place for student gathering and outdoor classroom. The amphitheatre in the middle plays as a place for outdoor class and performance. Grass area with brick seat walls become a place for students and staff to sit and enjoy conversations and sun as well as paved, flat and open area to provide a place for gathering and play. Each of the three zones is designed for its own function but can become one for bigger events and functions.
