SUPERSENSE authored a Heritage Interpretation and Wayfinding Strategy for a new Science facility at the Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College Campus, implemented concepts from that document, as well as contributing to the site’s initial masterplan.

SUPERSENSE’s interpretation at the campus has enhanced the connections between learning topics and activities (e.g. science, social enterprise, well-being and collaboration) and the College’s heritage, ‘heart’ and achievements. Embedded within architecture and landscape interpretation helps to humanise spaces and connect students and visitors to stimulating and motivating themes. Interpretation is key to achieving a unique ‘signature’ interpretation experience for the college.

A key feature is a contemporary take on the stained glass window, which reflects the religious underpinnings of the school whilst evoking the purpose of the new campus building. Glazed panes in the 4-level stairwell atrium feature microscopic scientific images of organisms and cells. This is illuminated in the evening. The gym features large scale historical images of Monte students playing sport. A series of machined bronze inlays in landscaped areas showcase Mercy values and Aboriginal connections.
