Recently the School Council commissioned architectural firm Gresleyabas to conduct a review of the Glenaeon’s Masterplan for our Middle Cove campus which was initially approved by Willoughby Council in 1995. Substantial work has been achieved over the past two decades, but as we consider the priorities for future projects, a fresh look at the broad shape of the Masterplan is timely to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our students and teachers, both currently and for the next generation.
The principals of the firm are:
Greg Burgess, a widely known and respected architect who has a significant CV of work in Steiner schools across Australia, and award winning work with and for indigenous communities such as the Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park Cultural Centre, NT and the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre in the Grampians, a collaborative design for five Aboriginal communities.
Greg has been a winner of numerous awards including the nation's most prestigious architectural prize - the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal for Architecture which he was awarded for his culturally sensitive designs and in recognition of his stature as an architect of great distinction throughout the world. We have been very fortunate to secure Greg’s services in reviewing our Masterplan.
Ahmad Abas, originally from Perth has built a solid practice in organic and natural architecture and now works as a partner with Greg. Click to continue
