Project Title: CATHOLIC THEOLOGY COLLEGE

The design of the courtyard garden for the Catholic Theological College evolved through close collaboration with Greg Burgess Architects.

This linear courtyard space flanked by significant old and new college buildings uses a series of planted and architectural veils to heighten the sense of mystery and contemplation.

A continuous seat wall encircles the courtyard backed by an internal evergreen hedge. Patterned paving directs views to a central steel sculptural form containing a small fountain element.

“The resolution poses a series of screens, which result in a tranquil and highly successful courtyard”

Jury Citation. AILA (Vic) 2001 Award of Commendation, Building Settings category
