Lynfield College

Patrick’s strong, bold approach featuring a “snakes and ladders” theme won this design competition.  A lively, creative use of level change to establish a link between play and learning.  The design focuses on a game of movement and transition through the pedestrian heart of the campus.  A thoroughfare doubles as an event space and open amphitheatre where steps, terraces, planters and seat tables platforms enable varied gathering sizes.  The new landscape promises to be robust and flexible and a great opportunity for incidental learning, play and imaginative games options.  The area is overlooked and allows for spill out activity, outdoor learning and primarily a social space for the college.
