Awarded the winner of the 2019 Master Builders Queensland Gold Coast Housing and Construction Award for an Educational Facility, the Winton Centre at A. B. Paterson College has set a new benchmark in educational learning spaces on the Gold Coast.

The project includes high quality finishes and encompasses 4500sq/m of learning spaces across three levels. The first floor features a magical rainforest-themed playground, three Pre-Prep classrooms, an Outside School Hours Care facility, a café and film studio.

The upper levels feature a Years 4 to 6 library, dedicated academic research space for staff, flexible learning spaces, a deck with a view to the three-storey atrium, and a 160-seat multi-purpose lecture theatre.

Equipped with retractable seating, Decor Systems acoustic panels, and a fully sprung floor, the lecture theatre is an incredible location for musical performances, band practice, dance recitals and more.

Brad White, the Decor Systems Queensland Special Projects Manager worked closely with all parties to come up with cost saving solutions that delivered substantial budget savings, seamless installation and a superb acoustic and visual outcome to this signature educational facility.

Designed by Burling Brown Architects, the learning areas are colourful, vibrant and dynamic, with abundant natural light throughout. The building is adorned in the colour palette of the Australian bush, representing A.B. Paterson’s strong heritage.
