The Morris Hall project is the 
redevelopment of Melbourne 
Girls’ Grammar’s existing junior 
school campus for years prep 
to four.

The existing 1970’s building has 
been extended and 
reconfigured to more clearly express the school’s learning 
philosophies for this age group. 
The provision of a softer, more 
nurturing environment with a 
strong emphasis on 
environmental sustainability is 
key to this.

Although the school is located 
on a confined inner, urban site, 
all learning studios offer 
integrated internal and external teaching areas via the use of 
expansive, upper level external decks.

Specialist areas are located in 
prominent, central positions 
within the campus so that the 
activities within are clearly 
visible through the school.
