GWA have worked with Northholm Grammar School since 2002. Over this period we have completed two masterplans and successfully delivered a diverse range of projects within the principles of these masterplans.

“The Lennon Centre was the first stage of the original Masterplan to be implemented in 2003. It not only meets all the parameters of a state of the art education facility but has been designed with an insightful appreciation of our rural setting as well as a wider vision of sustainability into the future. Embraced by our community, the design philosophy developed by GWA has proved to be a benchmark in all future development on our campus.”

Lynne Guthridge (Principal)

The Lennon Centre’s contemporary design involved combining simple forms which are clear and fluid in their language together with the site specific context of climate, and the traditional rural Australian vernacular.

The ambition to achieve appropriate shading, daylighting and ventilation lead to borrowing from the simple construction techniques employed on typical farms and their underlying rationale.
