Y Suites is a 733 bed Student accommodation development located in the heart of Canberra Civic and close to ANU. The development is offering students the opportunity to have off campus living with exceptional level of facilities and amenities. The island site offered the unique opportunity by allowing the development to play an important role in activating the precinct and facilitating a holistic architectural response that has contextual fit and presence within the Civic. Extensive common area facilities are allocated within the podium levels, whilst break out spaces are also included on every level above the podium to enhance the social dynamic and interaction of the students across the building.

St Patrick’s Primary School Lochinvar | SHAC

They say clover ignites soil, it converts nitrogen from the air and deposits rich nutrients back into the ground for healthy growth.

St Patrick’s Primary School at Lochinvar is a literal manifestation of the three-leaf clover. This pedagogical pattern won SHAC the Blacket Award for Stage One back in 2018. Now three stages, and five years, later the Masterplan has come to fruition, the school is complete – a cluster of learning leaves sprinkled on a country meadow, fit for country kids and clever teachers.
This project is an exemplary masterplanning and architectural solution to meet the needs of a growing school community, its staff, and its students, who started the project with a legacy of outdated and unsuitable school buildings. The design accomplishes much with little. Modesty scaled buildings are clustered to form a new school address and heart, creating the armature for new methods of teaching and learning.
