The Melbourne School of Design’s new building will house the next generation of architects, urban planners, landscape designers, builders and ecologists. The building is for students of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne and was designed by John Wardle Architects in collaboration with NADAA (Boston) who took out the Marion Mahony Award for Interior Architecture and the Architecture Award for Educational Architecture in the 2015 Australian Institute of Architects – Victoria Awards.
The atrium is a study environment for the future creators of sustainable cities and places of inhabitation. John Wardle Architects say “with its many inventive structural and environmental ideas, the building becomes a live learning tool for students and staff alike.”
The veneer used to clad the atrium is E.Regnans & E.Delegatensis (marketed as Tasmanian Ash) and can be bought from Briggs Veneers who do a marvelous job of turning our sustainably grown timber flitch into veneers for panelling and pressing.
