Bunbury Catholic College, Stage 2 Mercy Campus

Date: 2015

This secondary school is the second campus of Bunbury Catholic College located in a housing estate in Australind. Taylor Robinson Chaney Broderick completed a Master Plan for the future completed 6 stream secondary school and the detailed design for Stages 1 and 2 including a library, Middle School Building, Senior School Building, T&E facilities and Science Labs.

The key Master Planning idea was to provide a central formal “town square” and then arrange the buildings along pedestrian streets that lead to the town square. The buildings are mostly two-storey and this has generated a compact campus with interactions between teachers and students promoted as they “bump into” each other.

The formal and urban nature of the buildings is balanced by carefully designed details in the brickwork walls and by softer curving forms in key locations. The somewhat serious nature of the exterior of the building was contrasted with informal and brightly coloured interiors.
