Holy Family Catholic School Administration Building

It’s been a 10 year journey of development for the Holy Family Catholic School at Parafield Gardens and DesignInc has assisted the school along the way.
The most recent completed project is the long-awaited Administration and Staff Centre, which acts as the school’s new front door. The design allows for a variety of interfaces to occur in discreet spaces, between parents and the school, students and teachers, and teaching and administrative staff. The central focus of the building is the shared staff common room, which encourages interaction and dialogue and has a strong connection to the outside.
Activity-based working is a strategy that provides people with a choice of settings for a variety of workplace activities, rather than forcing them to undertake all work in the one setting.
The implementation of this strategy at Holy Family Catholic School resulted in a staff area that is largely open plan with areas for small meetings or team based activities. This area is highly accessible for students and interaction is encouraged.
