Project Description

St Catherine Laboure

Learning Environments Australia NSW Chapter Winner New Construction 

The re-imaged facility at St Catherine Laboure Catholic Primary School provides 6 new learning spaces, located around a shared central learning hub. During a consultation process that lasted 12 months, JDH Architects undertook a comprehensive a detailed process to ensure that the school community, the Parish and the local Community, were involved in, and part of the creation of these new spaces. The Design Thinking Workshops during the documentation phase sought to elicit new ways of thinking about learning spaces and to assist with transition into these spaces.

In the resulting design, student focus is paramount and has led to a successful flexible outcome for the school, with clear evidence of links between the design and the educational approach. The design of these dynamic, flexible spaces has resulted in improved utilisation of spaces and the creation of purposeful activities that spark innovative ways by which the students and teachers can come together in the learning process.
