Nicholls, ACT

The Nicholls John Paul College, Canberra is a new state-of-the-art educational facility implementing a high quality landscape design to match. The aim was to develop a highly sustainable landscape solution that pushed the boundaries of landscape design for educational facilities in Canberra whilst meeting the client‘s extensive brief and strict budget requirements.

The landscape design is defined by its strong use of directional lines, high quality finishes and sustainability principles. The landscape planting structure, spatial arrangement and hard landscape materials palette combine to create a seamless transition between the buildings and external spaces. The finished result provides a highly visual and sustainable environment that instills a strong sense of pride in the school community and sets a new bench mark for educational facility landscape design in Canberra.

The John Paul College project was nominated for several industry awards and was a 2014 Master Builders Awards Finalist.
