QUT Guild Bar
Location: QUT Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane
Client: Queensland University of Technology/ Leighton Contractors Pty Ltd
The 570sqm guild bar will be located in the new Y block Science and Technology building. The guild bar is the social hub of the university and its aim is to attract a variety of demographics within the QUT environment and outside this. The design incorporates the location of the building in context with the rest of the university, its surroundings (adjacent to the botanical gardens and the river) and the fact that it is a tenancy in the Science and Technology building. The design acknowledges the users of the space and type of events and will provide variety of seating options and operational modes. Floor treatments, ceiling bulkheads and screens are incorporated in such a way to divide the large open space. Material use has considered the environmental emphasis of the base building.
