Inner city Melbourne has many beautiful locales and highly sought after suburbs in which people want to live, but few are so pretty as the beachside suburb of Elwood. An established suburb, Elwood has become a hub for those who appreciate parklands and the beach while still wanting to immerse themselves in the social interaction to be found at nearby cafes, restaurants and speciality shops. And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
Education design cannot be overlooked when we think about the future of our built environments. From architecturally inspired schools, to the break down of physical barriers to learning – the way we design our education facilities says a lot about what we care about in society.
