PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Stormanston Catholic College and St Ambrose College

Two Catholic, single gender schools were to be co-located in the northern suburb of Joondalup on a shared 9 hectare site. While sharing some facilities, each school was to reflect the charism of a particular Religious Order in its Mission and Vision for the future. 

The location of this site adjacent to Lake Joondalup provided an opportunity to develop the Colleges to encompass environmental sustainability in a relevant and powerful way.  In investigating the emerging paradigms and in particular the environmental imperatives the world is facing, all groups involved in the consultation process acknowledged the need to develop these Colleges in line with sustainability principles. This goes beyond good facility design and extends into the management of the Colleges, the curriculum being delivered and the pursuit of ongoing projects sensitive to the environment.
