A 120 Year Old Building that Exemplifies Contemporary Design.

Nestled in Melbourne’s inner suburbs the Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership bridges the gap between the old and the new. Originally built as a school in 1882 by Henry Robert Bastow, it is the ideal setting for a forward thinking educational facility.

Boasting an array of design features it was awarded the best facade of 2012 by the AWCI. At the heart of this heritage listed building is a unique stair.  While complimenting the past with classic balustrading it remains contemporary with modern spotted gum steps flooded by light.
