Modular Pods Provide Contemporary Spaces For Australian Grammar School

Yarra Valley Grammar School, Harwyn, Modular Pods, Australia

The very first Harwyn modular pods were designed to provide a modern alternative home office, delivering much needed personal space for the at-home worker. The design has since been adapted to fit a plethora of markets, most notably education. Harwyn designs for the education sector have provided minimalistic and contemporary spaces for students that, due to their modular construction, can be dropped into their location.

Harwyn was commissioned by Yarra Valley Grammar to provide expansion space for their Drama and Music departments. Jane MacNeil, Corporate Services Manager at Yarra Valley Grammar, describes, “rehearsal space is always at a premium and we needed a quick and cost-effective solution to this problem. Luckily, the School had room in the center of the campus, and we approached a number of providers of appropriate rooms. Harwyn was the standout organization which could supply custom built, attractive rehearsal spaces in a relatively short time frame.”

The prefabricated designs reduced numerous construction errors to allow for a seamless transition from production to installation. MacNeil further explains, “Preparation of the site was very important, in our case, due to the unstable nature of the area and we were advised of the activities required to carry this out. Scoping the site for delivery and in particular, crane access, was also very carefully done.”

For the project, ALUCOBOND® PLUS was chosen in a Red Brass finish. The Spectra line of ALUCOBOND® generates a wonderful interplay between light, creating a remarkably playful exterior design. It’s color-shifting abilities produce a unique and engaging building at every angle.

ALUCOBOND® Spectra panels feature a Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resin topcoat. The topcoat allows for unparalleled gloss and color retention and also prevents against both chalking and fading. The color’s brightness can be attributed to the use of Lumiflon FEVE resin. Additionally, the use of a high-performance fluoropolymer topcoat will ensure protection against elemental deterrents that contribute to degradation.
