The Da Vinci Centre is a purpose designed two storey building for VCE studies. The Centre includes four modern science laboratories which open onto external learning spaces and indoor breakout study nooks. A dedicated upper level study area is provided for senior students.

Movable walls, full-width sliding doors and flexible, mobile furniture allow for the easy reconfiguration of spaces. Critical acoustic control was achieved via the use of soft and absorbent finishes and a bright colour palette and abundant natural light help infuse warmth and energy.

The building construction comprises structural steel, large span timber framing with acoustic timber, soft architectural interior finishes, feature masonry and metal and vitra panel cladding externally.
