The Future of Art, Design and Technology at Athelstone


Architectural render of the Art, Design and Technology Building by Architects Ink

“I’m most excited about the sense of inter-connectivity that I believe the building will have. It will feel like an art community works in the space. This will foster collaboration and the emergence of new ideas and methodologies.”

- Mary-Anne Hobbs, Curriculum Coordinator Cross Disciplinary Studies


Due for completion in early 2024, the Andrea Pozzo Centre for Art, Design, and Technology at the Athelstone campus will be the new hub for future generations of creatives and design thinkers.

Demonstrating our commitment to innovation, the modern, double-storey facility will facilitate cross-curriculum collaboration and the opportunity for students to work with the latest technologies. This exciting space will further foster creative and critical thinking and empower and inspire future entrepreneurs. Our students will benefit from deep, real-world learning experiences and the freedom to explore new ways of learning.


Exhibition Space

The simple but elegant design by Architects Ink takes direction from elements of our College’s existing architecture but with a fresh and thoughtful perspective. The functional design provides flexible working spaces and clear sight lines. The building will maximise natural light and provide views of the hills and surrounding nature. Heavy consideration was given to sustainability and designers have worked mindfully to incorporate sustainable building practices.

“The new Art, Design and Technology Building for the Senior School Campus is designed to ignite innovation. Intentionally refined, the building highlights the beauty in simplicity, allowing the creativity of the students’ work to be the focal point. It celebrates art, design and technology through a contemporary yet timeless building that showcases the College’s progressive thinking.”

Marco Spinelli (Class of 1981), Director Architect, Architects Ink
