ST KEVIN'S COLLEGE - Smith hall

Toorak | Victoria


Value     $1.5m
Status   Completed
 

Our master plan vision was to provide a unifying architectural language for St Kevin’s College. KC Smith Hall is the main assembly space for the College.  It stands at the entrance to the school and accordingly provides a significant first impression for visitors.  The new identity therefore started with renewal of this aging building.

A bridged entry at the building’s front has been transformed into a modern glass and metal platform containing a substantial new foyer and adjacent terrace on `found’ space.  Internally a raised stage was removed to provide greater flexibility.  A modern interior has been carved out of the existing form with coffered ceilings, parquet flooring, subtly concealed technology, and a graphic wall showing the history of the College in Australia.
