Hampton Park SC Fab Lab
The new facility reflects the schools desire to offer students more opportunities to engage in project-based learning and new technologies to better equip them
for the future economy. T Block is a conglomeration of 4 buildings built over a period extending from the original building in 1984 to the final addition in 2010. It currently houses, fashion, textiles, a wood workshop and electrical workshop with a focus on more traditional, trade-based technologies. The design proposal seeks to stitch together the 4 buildings as a whole and de-clutter the existing internal spaces to establish better visual connections between newly created spaces and to the surrounding external courtyards.
The new ‘Fab-Lab’ will incorporate collaborative workspaces with specialist manufacturing equipment, presentation spaces, new staff work areas , an entrepreneur hub and upgraded toilet facilities.
