St Augustine’s College Lavalla Stage 2 – Cairns

St. Augustine’s College Lavalla Stage 2 is a three-storey extension of an existing teaching building completed approximately 7 years prior. The existing building was designed by MMP Architects and constructed by Richard Field Constructions.

The extension mirrors the form and finish established in the first Stage. New spaces include a large Band Practice room and associated smaller music and recording rooms on the ground floor. The first and second floors accommodate Science Classrooms and collaborative break-out spaces. A large awning extends from the building over the footpath, identifying the Scott Street College entry and providing cover for student arrivals and departures. Informal external learning and waiting spaces have been created around the entry and associated under croft spaces.
