Project Description H2o were commissioned to design the refurbishment of the Architecture, Industrial & Interior Design faculty’s workshop at Swinburne University of Technology. The project adopts addition and subtraction to its existing masonry envelope with the introduction of a new expansive glass facade to create a light and open learning space for students and teachers alike. The refurbishment houses an array of advanced machinery for 3D printing, model making and technological invention to provide students with the most up to date practical knowledge. Furthermore, the bold material palette reflects the creative program of the spaces and encourages an imaginative approach to learning and collaboration.
