This project involved the addition of two classrooms, a shared kid's kitchen, and interactive nature-play courtyard. Fresh colours brighten the interior spaces, which extend into the outdoors with direct connection to the landscaped play spaces. Natural timbers envelope the outdoor areas to create an interactive and sheltered space for children to play and learn.
ST JOSEPHS COLLEGE
Extensive landscaping works have now integrated the newly constructed buildings with the earlier building stages into an attractive setting with paved activity areas, a school vegetable garden and access paths linking the various building levels, oval and existing school facilities.
The St Joseph's Early Learning Centrearea provides an opportunity for children to develop a range of physical, sensory and intellectual skills in a wonderful natural playing environment.
LITTLE GROVE PRIMARY SCHOOL
The Little Grove Primary School shares its grounds with the larger community and this water play park is the first stage of a broader educational play space proposed for the site. It features hand operated pumps, a creek bed, an engineered rock mound plus timber decks and bridges. The play space encourages creativity and bush-play skills in a natural setting.
The Fishtraps Boardwalk project was designed as an interpretation installation to lightly touch the landscape. Winding boardwalks hover over the banks of Oyster Harbour, so people can meander through the historical Aboriginal Fish Traps site and view the surrounding landscape.
This multifunction community centre is the first stage of a large development in Lockyer in Albany by Juniper. The building is a flexible and contemporary facility with a Cafe, function space, offices, workshop, and space for various community events and activities. The landscaping responds to the spaces surrounding it, with a sheltered alfresco area with large inbuilt BBQ, and secure Kid's grassed play area. Waterwise native plants were planted along the wide verge, which when mature, will blur the definition between the building and road, and soften the elevation. Large format feature pavers surround the site with compliant access to all areas.
