Nazareth: The Next Generation

Nazareth: The Next Generation

After 15 years working with Nazareth Catholic Community, we are thrilled to share our appointment as architects for the school’s new Kidman Park campus.

Recent work for this rapidly growing school includes the 2020 master plan, as well as the St Gabriel Centre satellite campus in Underdale, which opened at the beginning of 2021.

Catering to an expanding senior population, Kidman Park will be the first purpose-built, stand-alone Year 11 and 12 campus for Catholic students in South Australia. Work is now well underway to refine designs for the new facility.

The Kidman Park campus will be the third major campus for Nazareth. It will build on the flexible and sociable designs honed in our award-winning Caritas building at nearby Flinders Park, and in the more recently completed St Gabriel Centre.

Situated on a newly acquired 2.64 hectare site, the facility will continue to explore ways to support more collaborative and self-directed education, with dedicated facilities for STEAM, food and technology, fitness, and general learning. A student café, administration and student services will round out the offering, along with expanded car and bicycle parking on site. Construction is anticipated to commence in November, with the new facilities to open for senior students in 2023.
