St Brigid’s Green, Maroubra, NSW

St Brigid’s Green is a state-of-the-art aged care facility comprising 89 independent living units across four buildings, and a 66-suite residential aged care facility. Our commission involved the design, documentation, fabrication and installation of over 400 items of exterior and interior signage.

During construction we carried out a thorough review of the building, analysing the space, and predicted traffic patterns. Our thorough understanding of each buildings’ operational requirements and user behaviours, enabled us to design and implement an appropriate and effective wayfinding strategy.

To acknowledge and commemorate the site as the former location of Brigidine High School, our scope included an interpretive display.

We undertook all research, copywriting, archival image and artefact sourcing, and the design of a display system that integrated objects and artefacts to complement narrative themes. An authentic symbol of the Brigidine Congregation – the Reed Cross – was 3D scanned and cast in bronze.

Our attention to detail and immersive storytelling ensured delivery of a visually and intellectually engaging display that, for residents, reinforces a sense of place.

Interpretive plaques are installed throughout the five-building complex, connecting the property’s naming convention with historical local personalities. Our interpretive solution has received glowing endorsement from building management, residents and the Congregation of the Brigidine Sisters.
