About the project

Conrad Gargett won through design competition the masterplan for Somerset College, a leading private school at Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast. In conjunction with Somerset’s 2014-2018 strategic plan, the brief outlined a number of new developments including a strong focus on new and redeveloped sporting facilities.

Conrad Gargett’s design response for the Somerset College Sporting Facilities identified a number of opportunities to leverage vistas to enhance the arrival experience for both academic and sporting facilities, including a new landscaped entry to a redeveloped sporting precinct. This approach develops and promotes the College’s sporting identity by virtue of these arrival experiences through new and revitalised landscape settings.
