Range of flexible spaces teaching spaces arranged around an internal street in a zinc, glass and concrete clad building

The three-storey centre houses the teaching and learning spaces for the broad spectrum of design disciplines taught within the school.

An internal street, which contains the schools circulation, runs the length of the building and divides the lecture and seminar spaces at the front of the building from the louder workshop and teaching spaces that are aligned along the rear facade. This rear zinc clad facade has a saw tooth profile, which is an extension of the concrete saw tooth roof that contains opening roof lights above the internal street.

The buildings exposed concrete frame, walls, floors, ceiling and roof not only helps to dampen noise traveling through the building but also add thermal mass to cool the building.
