Whilst employed by Machin Design I was on the project team for the refurbishment of Murdoch University’s Library and Learning Common, which won a Master Builder’s Association award for excellence in construction in 2008.

The Brief – Murdoch wanted a central location for student learning and services; an inspiring, inspirational environment that would give students a sense of connection to each other, staff and the university.

Finishes were selected to stimulate learning and identify services– strong colours were selected for different service areas and pattern for various seating zones. The guild cafe area utilizes warm tones to create a friendly and inviting space, where bright greens and blue in breakout spaces to create a space that inspires creative group conversations.

The result reflects Murdoch’s commitment to enhancing the learning experience.
