The new Waterford building at Shalom College opened for the start of the 2021 school year. Designed to support project-based learning, the two-storey building features fourteen classrooms that are directly connected to both indoor and outdoor breakout learning spaces. Internally operable glass divisions allow acoustic separation, supervision, and access to natural light and cross ventilation.
‘The Forum’ is a simple covered meeting area adjacent the heritage registered St Joseph’s Cathedral. The award winning project is simple in it’s form as to not contest with the cathedral adjacent. The aim of the design was to create a large covered area with minimal visual impact on the elegance of the Gothic inspired, sandstone Cathedral.
The Covered Meeting Area provides an overflow congregation space for the Cathedral. The structure provides a complimentary link between the Parish Centre and the Cathedral.
Featuring indoor and outdoor connections and natural materials, the new St Joseph’s Catholic Kindergarten encourages nature-based outdoor learning with mud kitchens, water play, tree climbing scrambles and veggie gardens. The Kindy is both sited and orientated to be in connection with the adjoining St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Early Learning Precinct which allows for prep visits and joint activities, to assist with the transition from Kindy to Prep.
