Bence Mulcahy working with Holy Rosary Catholic School, Claremont have undertaken a series of projects sequentially over five years.
The scope includes new teaching spaces, toilets, canteen and community space, a new Mapali room (learning support), a library, internal alternations to the kindergarten and, a prep building.
Whilst each is designed as a small standalone project, all share the singular aim, to acknowledge the schools original development patterns, original building forms/ materiality and knit the schools existing fabric together and reinforce its existing architectural intentions.
The scale, form and materiality of the new work pays homage to the original, whilst the divergent gestures are subtle, playful and contemporary.
This project enhances the school by providing much needed amenity and reasserts a clarity and consistent quality to the schools built form after a period of divergence.
