wilson architects’ vision for brisbane’s all hallows’ school is a distinct layering of historical heritage and contemporary architecture. the design was completed in order to facilitate the accommodation of seventh year students into secondary school. deemed ‘mary place’ — after the mother of Jesus — the modern five story façade stands amongst some of brisbane’s oldest buildings. the energy efficient education complex features active learning spaces and a vibrant, central courtyard for students to socialize
