‘The Acacias’ building is the spiritual heart of Loreto College, providing many important functions over the years. The listed building is recognised for its rare substantially intact interiors, and with this new refurbishment, it is now home to the school’s administrative core.

Interior elements and furnishings were carefully curated in blocks of colour to complement the highly detailed interiors, while repurposed older furniture pieces provide a historical continuity and sense of modesty to the character of each space. 

The reception area was refurbished with appropriate wallcoverings and new workstations were custom-designed for all offices. Lighting upgrades utilise existing fixing points and introduce contemporary fittings suitable for administrative offices.

The spaces have been given a new lease on life, whilst respecting and enhancing the building’s significant heritage value. Visitors and families are now welcomed into the school’s spiritual core, and provide a reflective and serene working environment for senior staff members.
