Loreto Normanhurst is an independent secondary girl’s school located off Pennant Hills Road in Normanhurst. Tanner Kibble Denton Architects prepared a masterplan for the school in 1997. The masterplan identified several different scenarios for the future redevelopment of the school site but all options identified the need to provide a swimming pool to support the school’s Personal Development and Physical Education Program.
The swimming pool had been on the school’s agenda for many years. The location for the new indoor swimming pool had been selected in the masterplan. The ideal location for this new facility was immediately adjacent to the existing C.1980’s gymnasium and the oval/playing fields on the southern edge of the main group of school buildings. The client’s brief for this project was developed in consultation with TKD Architects and the extent of the facilities to be provided in the new building was eventually determined by the constraints of the site and the available funding.
