The Abbotsford Primary School project incorporated restoration works, and the design of a new Wellness Center to address the changing pedagogical and wellbeing requirements of the school and its community in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The school community was heavily impacted by the global pandemic, resulting in the need for changes to the way the school supports their students’ needs.

This project called for the creation of a dedicated wellbeing centre with specialised art therapy and counselling support spaces. In addition to the creation of new internal wellbeing spaces, Grayspace Architects also developed a series of external spaces designed to provide a calming, therapeutic environment for one-on-one and small group teaching and learning opportunities. In total, a series of 6 spaces were created to provide the school with improved teaching and learning facilities that better support students’ learning needs and general wellbeing.
