Glowrey Catholic Primary School
Glowrey Catholic Primary School was the first Catholic School to open in the growing suburb of Wollert in North Melbourne, in 2019. Representing stage 2 of the development, this project required the delivery of a new single storey, glazed brick veneer school building encompassing a contemporary learning environment.
Lotus acoustic glazed sliders were incorporated into the learning areas and classrooms, promoting learning by osmosis with their glass panels, whilst remaining visually connected even when the doors are closed. This allows light between spaces, and visual and figurative transparency when it comes
to varying teaching and learning practices, while minimising noise transfer.
In total 14 face fixed cavity Acoustic Glazed Sliders were used in various configurations, one being a 3-way Slider intersection within the main classroom learning area, to provide inter-class teaching or larger group projects when required, an increasing requirement in school redevelopments.
