Oran Park, Sydney, Australia
St. Justin’s Catholic Primary School
Education + Communities
A proposed new 840-student school adjacent to a major new town centre development in south-west Sydney. The masterplan was developed in an iterative briefing process with the client. The project is a continuation of ThomsonAdsett’s research into providing flexible and agile learning spaces that support new pedagogical approaches.
The resultant masterplan stems from a desire for the whole site - indoors and outdoors - to be a learning space that reflects the cultural, social and natural heritage of the locale, in addition to the spiritual and educational philosophies that will underpin the school. The project is currently in the development assessment phase. Stage 1 is scheduled for construction in 2011 for the school to commence on site in 2012.
