Project Name

Loreto Mandeville Centre

Project background 

Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak is a Catholic school for approximately 1,000 girls from Prep to Year 12 with a co-educational Early Learning Centre at St Peter’s Parish, Toorak. The proposed Learning Resource Centre, to be known as the Mandeville Centre, has been designed in accordance with the 1999 Incorporated Master Plan. 

The new building will be sited adjacent to the historically significant Mandeville Hall and Chapel. The Mandeville Centre will provide Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak with: 

  • A Year 12 Centre of excellence 
  • Learning Resources Hub - a shared hub for years Prep to 12 
  • Staff Study and Common Room - an enhanced workplace for Staff 
  • Administration – gateway and greeting to the campus 
  • Basement car parking The built form will be varied, and has been designed to provide deep overhangs and sun shading to the west and north. Metal screening at upper levels provide western shading. These design details contribute to achieving a building design that is responsive to environmentally sustainable design practice.
