Lennon Centre, Northholm Grammar School

The Journey

“The Lennon Centre was the first stage of the original Masterplan. 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.” – Lynne Gutheridge (Principal)


The design narrative 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 solution incorporated appropriate shading, daylighting and ventilation, synonymous with typical rural dwellings and their underlying rationale.


GWA have worked with Northholm Grammar School since 2002 on a range of projects, including two masterplans and a diverse range of projects.
