Sustainability at its heart
Designed to meet the high standards of the Green Building Council’s 6 Star Green Star Design and As-Built v1.3 rating, Boola Katitjin pushes the boundaries of what is possible in sustainability in the built environment.
Connecting to the surrounding landscape, every aspect of Boola Katitjin considers the environment, from the structure itself, made of a fully renewable resource, to the use of natural ventilation throughout.
Boola Katitijin – lots of learning
Named by Dr Richard Walley OAM and endorsed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group, Boola Katitijin translates to ‘lots of learning’.
This Connection to Country was key in the design and implementation of the building. From the yarning circles in the welcome area, to the artwork that focuses on the heritage of the land, Boola Katitjin is meant to reflect the significance of the land on which it stands which has been a place of learning for tens of thousands of years.
