Following an international design competition, fjmt was commissioned to design this noteworthy development that represented a unique opportunity to transform a key site into a powerful new campus identity and gateway.
The design is uncompromisingly modern, providing state-of-the-art workplace, study and learning environments, general teaching spaces, lecture theatres, library, retail, basement car parking and integrated public domain. It incorporates significant sustainable innovation including a double-skin ventilated façade with occupant controlled timber louvres, to control solar gain and glare, mixed-mode, chilled-beam and displacement airconditioning, precinct stormwater collection and an iconic light tower which fills below-grade spaces with an abundance of filtered, natural light.The project has received numerous awards including AIA awards for Architecture, Urban Design and Sustainability.
