Whitefriars Catholic School – Caritas Building | Detail Studio

The Caritas Building at Whitefriars Catholic School is the result of a collective vision to create and deliver a high quality and engaging learning environment for junior primary students and educators in which to thrive. The materials are bold and striking creating a strong connection between external and internal spaces that enhances the school identity. The contemporary architectural language, predominantly defined by the textural, articulated precast panels, work in harmony with the existing school buildings and adjacent residential streetscape. The rich landscape design connects seamlessly with the building and interior providing important opportunities for indoor/ outdoor learning. Child-centred spaces promote happy engaged learners through connections and participation within the School and greater community.

Marnkutyi Parirna Theatre | Detail Studio

The newly completed Marnkutyi Parirna Theatre at Trinity College stands as a testament to the College’s unwavering commitment to embracing 21st-century educational opportunities. Inspired by principles of innovation and creativity, this exceptional space redefines the traditional concept of a theatre, offering students and the community alike a sophisticated and elegant environment in which to engage in rich, authentic learning experiences.

Creativity and innovation are woven into every aspect of the theatre’s design, from the fluidity of the seating arrangements to the dynamic movement reflected in the timber batten design on the walls.

Central to the theatre’s vision is the authentic partnership with the Kaurna people, honouring Indigenous narratives and connections to the local landscape. The concept of the Three Rivers, symbolising unity and connection, is deeply integrated into the design elements, enriching the space with cultural symbolism and a profound sense of place.
