During 2016 MJA_studio undertook a study of sites in the Perth CBD for new primary and secondary schools. The proposal for a new 450 pupil primary school, kindergarden and early learning centre is housed in a 5 storey vacant commercial building on Adelaide Terrace in Perth's CBD.
The secondary school proposal was briefed by the Department of Education for a school of 1400 pupils. The study concluded with a campus style approach to the 1 hectare site currently occupied by the WA Housing Authority. Both projects seek to create alternate answers for CBD vacancy rates and opportunities for the return of state education to the Perth CBD.
