About the project

The Townsville Grammar School site is situated on a prominent corner location of North Shore Boulevard and Erskine Place in North Shore, in the Northern Beaches growth corridor of Townsville.

Through the exploration, testing and refinement of ideas, the concept design aligns to the schools objectives. It balances functional requirements with an aspirational design outcome to promote the schools culture of achievement and identity as the leading educational institution in North Queensland.

The covered outdoor learning area (COLA), or ‘The Street’ is a unifying element and signature for the school, providing a covered connection to the campus promoting a comfortable environment for learn and play. ‘The Street’ offers the opportunity for all year’s levels to congregate sinuously, and integrates hardscape and softscape elements to define clusters for group learning.
