bureau^proberts response provides a bold building envelope. Generous overhangs and metered use of glass and screening provides control to the northern and western elevation. The southern elevation provides transparency, connection and focus to the University Campus. Open planned workstations and offices are pushed toward the external walls allowing natural light to penetrate into all work areas. Shared amenities and meeting rooms are centralized with service zones spread strategically across the facility, providing an efficient and cost effective planning solution whilst still satisfying the University’s design guideline requirements.
