EIW has been working very hard during the last 12 months as a new major facility is under construction at Iona Presentation College, a girls Catholic School in the Presentation Sisters tradition. It is an exciting project that brings together the creative arts, a stunning new resource centre over two levels with dedicated study suites, design and media spaces including a broadcast studio and innovation labs, cafeteria and a café that fronts a Melbourne-style lane way, presentation forum and a staff community space that commands views of the Swan River and the Indian Ocean.
The response to the College’s heritage and culture is developing a ‘Presentation Walk’ celebrating the origins of the Irish order and the committed sisters who settled in Australia and found their way to Perth. The relationship of the building on this incredibly tight site with its surrounds will build a spirit of place for generations to come. The completion of this iconic development will be mid-2020 when the full fit-out, designed by EIW in close collaboration with the College, will come to fruition.
We look forward to sharing more progress soon.
