Student Hub




The conversion of a 1970s Gregory Burgess ‘shed’ building from art studios to a 24 hour post-graduate student hub, this project is part of RMIT’s move towards housing and supporting a significant international student population housed at their Bundoora Campus. 

This project provides a 24 hour Hub or‘lounge room’ for students living in student accommodation on the campus, but a ‘lounge room’ that includes spaces for dedicated quiet study, PhD presentations and seminars, cups of tea, meeting friends for a catch-up, late night World Cup screenings etc. Particular care has been taken to address concerns about after-hours bullying and avoid spaces that prevent people walking away from this type of behaviour.
