Our Lady College wins a Regional Commendation
Fulton Trotter Architects is pleased to announce our first Regional Commendation for 2011 in the Australian Institute of Architects Queensland Architecture Awards.
Our nominations were Our Lady of the Southern Cross College Library & Hall and Faith Lutheran College Language Centre. Of four-teen projects, only five received commendations.
Our Lady of the Southern Cross College successfully took one of these five commendations.
“A clash of cultures was the basis of the brief for this unification project that delivers a new front door for a school that has emerged from parallel campuses.
An energetic use of colour and references to the steel farm building construction common in this rural community has informed the architectural approach and allowed an opportunity to build in the school logo to the steel flanges of the columns.
The stepped roof form makes a successful transition from the refurbished multi use hall to the library space and entry portico. The measure of success is evident in the successful use of the space by the two formerly divergent streams.” – Jury Citation
We would like to thank the team involved in this project, including the builder and consultants and especially our client. This is the first award for Futon Trotter Architects in Dalby.
In 2010 we were awarded a Regional Commendation for the Miles Hospital Redevelopment in nearby Miles. We continue to build on our excellent knowledge and clear interest in the Downs and we plan on winning many more awards in the future out this way.
