Hutt International Boys' School: M Block

The original M Block, located at the entry of Hutt International Boys’ School M Block, was removed and replaced with a new two-storey Modern Learning Environment (MLE) teaching block. The new block comprises eight classrooms, a Teacher Resource office, and a multi-functional senior common room and function space.

Particular attention was placed on creating best practice teaching spaces, together with establishing a prototype classroom model that will be replicated during progressive classroom replacement in the years ahead.

Key design considerations included adoption of simple structural solutions and lightweight internal partitioning systems to accommodate future change at minimal cost. Flexible learning spaces open into shared communal zones to provide a multitude of teaching environments and educational delivery opportunities.

Environmentally, considered attention has been placed on providing passive control of heating and cooling as well as optimising sunlight and controlling solar gain.
