Charles Sturt University Engineering Building by ThomsonAdsett, Bathurst – Australia

April 20th, 2016 by retail design blog

The building is designed to accommodate the university’s unique new degree, which equips students with both engineering and business skills. Our design meets both these needs, by providing a pitching space for business activity and maker studio, which embraces the ‘Maker Movement’ – a trend where discarded or broken goods are re-imagined and marketed.

The existing facility has been transformed with a gallery, technological wall, Honeycomb of Learning, maker studio, pitch space and labs, which encourage experimentation, partnerships and enterprise.

We have created a character and sense of home for this new community, by using materials akin with regional farm and shed buildings. The form and re-use of the existing frames symbolises home, complements the rural shed aesthetic and maximises the use of embodied energy. This unique project illustrates the benefits of designing a curriculum and associated learning environment in parallel.
