La Valla at Marist College Bendigo has received a Commendation in the Learning Environments Australasia Awards 2020. Entered under ‘New Construction / New Individual Facility Under $8 Million’ the project is the 5th stage of Marist’s masterplan, which comprises three distinct learning villages in the Bendigo campus, Victoria.

Designed to suite the pedagogical philosophies of Reggio Emila La Valla is a ‘living’ building in both its dynamic learning environments and it’s connectivity with the surrounding natural environment. Catering to the school’s youngest age group (5-10-year olds), the children are immersed in a dynamic, engaging space that encourages curiosity and imagination through warm natural textures and interactive learning.
