Our Lady of the Southern Cross College Library
Expressed steel truss roof framing used on the existing hall was also continued for the entry awning and library. This works to visually tie together both existing and new work. Supporting columns implore a strong visual element of the College symbol – “Southern Cross”.
Generous ceiling heights in the main body of the library were used to ensure that the space was inviting and that there would be a high sense of visual amenity. Visual games were played with wall cladding treatments looking like books stacked whilst continuing the theme of bright colours found in the existing primary school. An industrial aesthetic that relates to the Dalby region was developed within finishes. Corrugated steel ceilings expressed steel structure and natural concrete finishes were used.
