Carlton School

Construction – LCS Landscapes
Design – LCS Landscapes

Carlton School R-9 is located in Port Augusta. The school has a Pitjantjatjara language program for all students and an extension class for fluent speakers.

Due to the flat and dry nature of the site, our design intent was to provide some height in the form of advanced trees and raised planted beds to create shade and opportunities for children to explore, learn, and relax. The nearby Flinders Rangers provided ample inspiration with the rock gorges, waterholes, colours, arid plants, and varying textures this area is famous for.

Materials were handpicked from areas and suppliers within 100km of the site, Adelaide, and from interstate.

We are thrilled with what we have been able to create for Carlton School, It was an extremely exciting and stimulating project for everyone involved with its construction and design. The School is very proud of the result which has been overwhelmingly received by both the students and school staff.
