Feature pattern brickwork Under Construction

By Jon Lowe Sep 21st 2010 10:00am

Currently Under Construction and due for completion later this year, the new Special Education Centre at Tyndale Christian School has three contrasting brickwork patterns indentifing the three main volumes of the centre.

GLC 01

The Junior school area (The Good Learning Centre) has large diagonal stripes with random tilt-shifts or breaks, as if the building has been shook or jilted, akin to a lighting strike.

GLC 02

The pattern wraps around each volume (entry under the canopy on the left).

GLC 03

GLC 03

The mid-section of the facility houses spaces for specialists in speech, physiotherapy and counselling as well as a life skills centre, and is identified by a 'space invaders' type pattern.

mid section 02mid section 03

The brickies counted brick by brick off the elevations, matching the CAD hatching exactly.

mid section 04

the Zone

The middle school (or The Zone) pattern is reminiscent of silted layers of earth, or perhaps a contour map.

Murraylands Education Precinct Masterplan

By Jon Lowe Feb 24th 2011 12:30pm

Greenway recently pitched a Masterplan and fly-thru animation for the new Murraylands Educational Precinct, on behalf of the Regional Development authority and the Murray Bridge Council. We built a report based on the discussions and the objectives coming out of a series of workshops.

The vision of the Murray Bridge Educational Precinct will be to create a flexible and dynamic centre for educational excellence, delivering strategic learning pathways and outcomes for students and the community from Murray Bridge and its wider neighboring surrounds.


The design concept uses a new axis (or pedestrian link) from the river to the Precinct's Learning Mall, to provide a strong identity for the precinct and to act as the glue to hold the Precinct together. The axis runs from the existing DECS building and links into the new entry of focal point for the Precinct in the refurbished TAFE Building 1. It is envisioned that in future the axis could even continue as far northwards to create direct links with any future possible development along the frontage of the River Murray.

The architectural aesthetic of the new Murray Bridge Education Precinct will be a contemporary one, with many different building elements to break-down the mass of the buildings to a human scale. A common architectural language and a material palette of timber screens, off form concrete, folded sheet metal, steel, glass, and "green" (vegetated) walls link the Precinct buildings together, while providing distinct character and identity for each of the elements, and reserving the biggest visual impact for the Precinct's key entry points and focal points.

Existing buildings will be modernized both internally and externally to improve their appearances, and also to improve their energy efficiency, flexibility and functionality. New facilities will be designed to engage with their natural and built environments, to provide transparent ‘skins' whereby the internal functions of the buildings can engage both physically and visually with the external environment within which they sit.



Roxby Downs Police Station Opens

By Simon Frost Apr 13th 2011 2:00pm


Greenway's latest Police Station gets a write up on the Adelaide Now Website:

The growing population of Roxby Downs will have an increased police presence when its new $10 million police station opens its doors tomorrow.

Designed to accommodate the future expansion of policing resources, Roxby Downs Police Station has a large Patrol Base and room for the specialist areas of Criminal Investigation Branch, Crime Scene Investigation, Forensic Services and Criminal Justice Service.

Officer in Charge of the Far North Local Service Area Superintendent James Blandford says the new police station will have a capacity of up to 30 police officers.

"The new police station is purpose built to accommodate the extra police services we need now and into the future with our local community expanding," he says.A police statement says the facility boasts state of the art technology which will provide local police with the most modern cell complex aimed at improving police safety and ensuring the welfare of prisoners.

The cell complex includes three holding cells, a padded cell, enclosed exercise yard and administrative and support areas.

A training/conference room, laboratory and forensic vehicle examination shed and a new secure car park complete the facility.

The project, which officially commenced in November 2009, will be officially opened for business tomorrow by Police Commissioner Mal Hyde.

Jamie Larcombe Centre

By Pete Tynan Dec 14th 2017 10:00am

The Jamie Larcombe Centre has officially opened - see news article here.

Glenside Health Service Campus provides an opportunity to develop a purpose-built, multi-use facility to be a Centre for Excellence for treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The site is low-stimulus and private, with access to recreational, community and garden spaces. The site is primarily dedicated to Veterans mental health with a new facility to provide distinct care for Veterans of all ages and for first responders.
The new facility attaches to a previous Intermediate Care Centre with some of that facility altered to suit the new function. The simple skillion roof form of the building continues the same design language as the existing building and allows for maximum natural light and ventilation. A large focus has been made to de-institutionalize the facility, to provide a warm, welcoming and secure and safe atmosphere with views and access to a variety of beautifully landscaped courtyards.
