Notre Dame University’s School of Education Interiors

i

An opaque screen, designed for Notre Dame University in Fremantle, divides a cavernous room into two more useful spaces. The building’s decorative, heritage features are referenced through the form the screen but at the same time its steel detailing nods to a more modern Fremantle.

This project demonstrates the potential of one, clear design idea to totally transform the way in which a space is used with minimal cost and without damaging the building fabric. Small but impactful projects like this provide unifying links through the disparate urban campus, creating moments of joy and beauty for students and staff.
