Glasshouse Christian College is a prep to year 12 co-educational school located in Beerwah, a growing regional town in the forested hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. Fulton Trotter Architects first partnered with the college to design and deliver a new general learning area building with staff administration and amenities, as well as an outdoor covered sports centre with a gym.

The most recent project is a multi stage performing and creative arts project including music, dance, drama, and hospitality facilities, as well as a 600 seat theatre.

The new architecture features sandstone coloured blockwork as a reference to the existing classroom and church buildings on the campus. Splashes of bold colour and variations on traditional building forms and roof styles signify a new generation of buildings for the college.

A greater connection to the outdoors, specifically the nearby Beerwah State Forest or the Glass House Mountains, has been incorporated into each of the new buildings: whether it is the creation of covered outdoor learning areas overlooking the adjacent bushland, or abstracted patterns of the mountain panorama being incorporated into the interior design.
