Consultancy Services: Schematic Design, 3D Conceptualisation, Design Development, Contract Documentation, Contract Administration


The project vision was to unify the old with the new, through the provision of quality external spaces for students and staff to enjoy and interact with, while providing seamless connections to the built facilities.

Features of the Science Building courtyard design include curvilinear seating arrangements with in a tree bosque providing maximum opportunities for social interaction. A designated food science area to complement the schools’ strong science curriculum is also included.

Pergolas and green wall systems connect buildings with the landscape while creating sustainable outcomes through improved energy efficiency. Large timber decks adjoining the library and Mary Davis Centre create spill out areas for students to escape the confines of the classroom.

The planting theme reinforces the formal nature of the school’s garden history. Trees have been selected and located to provide natural shade and to strengthen main pedestrian links.
