A connected centre

The seven-storey Innovation Centre incorporates a range of dynamic, versatile learning spaces and studios, designed to enhance cross-curricular learning, further foster creative and critical thinking and inspire an entrepreneurial mindset.

The flexible design of the open collaboration spaces will engage K-12 students across all learning domains. It will also provide important connections, expanding the use of the Marian Centre, Centenary Hall and the Gymnasium.

The design was the subject of extensive consultation with local residents, parents and staff in 2017, and amendments were made to the original design in light of feedback received. Significant effort has been undertaken to retain the natural beauty of the area and views for Loreto Kirribilli’s neighbours and the broader community. As such, the Innovation Centre includes four levels of basement within the seven-storey building which will be lower in height than the adjacent street-facing building known as the Marian Centre.

The building will include beautifully landscaped surrounds with accessible walkways connecting the Innovation Centre with the School’s Front Drive, Junior School, Marian Centre and Centenary Hall.


An extended and improved Gymnasium will provide more space and facilities for sports and fitness.

Workshops, studios
& exhibitions

Purpose-built workshops and digitally-advanced spaces will accommodate hands-on innovation and exhibitions.

Multipurpose, flexible
learning environments

Project Story

During 2019 an early works package has been undertaken in preparation for the start of excavation and construction.

In May 2019 temporary classrooms were installed onsite to provide additional learning spaces, and in the July school holidays the B-Block building, which will be the site of the Innovation Centre, was demolished.

Stage 1 – July 2019
