Streetscape Concept, Brigidine College
Whiteroom Archietcts is working with Brigidine College Indoroopilly to revitalise the street presence of their Campus.
The way that the College Campus addresses and interacts with the wider community has naturally evolved over 90 Years. As building maintenance becomes due we believe it is possible to make small-scale but cohesive intervention that will enhance the streetscape of the Campus through a series of staged projects.
Upgrading access for students and creating an obvious entry to the College address on Ward Street is a priority within the proposal.
Replacement and revitalisation of tired building elements and landscaping will give the campus a cohesive appearance and sense of place that shows off the high quality of the educational facilites within the campus which are continually improved, including a new Science and Technology building, designed by Blight Rayner Archietcts, which is currently under construction.
The Curragh Cafe, Brigidine College
Whiteroom Architects was engaged by Brigidine College Indooroopilly to manage the construction of a new outdoor covered seating area that forms a link between the College's main green space (The Curragh) and their new Tuck Shop (which was completed as part of a previous Whiteroom project).
A dual-purpose area that combined bleacher seating with an outdoor dining terrace has made the most of this South-facing area, which overlooks the College's only open grassy sports and play area.
Proposed as part of a Landscape design by Local Landscape Architect, Deb Robins of Aspect Studios, and with the input of Structural Engineer Brett Wellauer, of Cozens Regan Williams Prove, the project was masterfully constructed by legendary Brisbane Landscape Builders, Naturform.
With the bulk of the works on the ground completed during the December-January School Holidays, the project was split into two stages with the roof structure being fabricated off-site and installed during the following Easter Holidays, meaning that the College could continue to operate seamlessly while the improvements were built.
Library Interior - Brigidine College
Fun, fresh and flexible. The redevelopment of the learning hub in the School Library has uplifted existing spaces with new furniture, fixtures, fittings, library book shelving and flexible learning spaces.
What were previously desk-top computing laboratories have been converted into flexible use rooms for small groups of students and teachers to meet and work on projects in ways that are more often associated with university learning and professional work.
Brigid's Cloak - Uniform Shop & Interiors Upgrade
Minor Works were undertaken to upgrade the Uniform Shop and building common area hallways within an existing building on campus.
Utilising our experience in commercial internal fit-outs and retail we created a retail feel that allowed for a shop-like feel rather than the old-style of a 'Quarter-master' Dispensary.
Programmed to be completed during the Christmas Holidays, allowing the College to seamlessly operate the shop, without interruption.
Hallways were upgraded with Acoustic linings that allow students to display their work and improve the amenity of the busy spaces during peak times, reducing reverberate noise considerably.
