Architectus 2015


Winner of the 2016 AIA National Award for Educational Architecture, the Mandeville Centre is a focal point for the Loreto community. The building links all aspects of the school’s operations and houses reception, a senior school staff centre, a lecture theatre, a library, a Year 12 centre, and a basement car park.

Designed as a ‘pinwheel’, the centre features a central atrium that animates and positions the building as a focal point for a range of physical and spiritual elements both on- and offsite. Informal learning spaces woven throughout the light-filled environment spark interaction between students and teachers.

Steel fins on the building’s exterior frame views from inside while also screening sunlight from the east and west, creating a design that enlivens the façade without competing with the architecture of nearby Mandeville Hall. The transparency of the northern side of the building allows for a seamless connection with the landscape and school setting.
