This incredible design from Clarke Hopkins Clarke Architects incorporates an over sized cross featuring at both entrances to the building signifying the catholic values held by Saint Ignatius College.
Internally, timber paneling can be seen throughout, a standout feature in the main reception and as dividers for breakout areas across other levels. The staff lounge facilities make the most of their stunning view out to the You Yangs and the cleverly designed student well being centre design creates a warm yet private layout welcoming students into a safe environment.
The standout timber staircases at both ends of the building provide natural light, a visually pleasing aesthetic and wide functional steps to avoid over-crowding.
