This project aimed to deinstitutionalize Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds Library to improve the student experience and better meet their evolving learning needs. The new library offers more diverse studying and meeting options, it is a social place, a place to exchange ideas and engage actively in learning.

The building comprises a series of spaces including group and individual study spaces, a moot court, an IT training space and a 24 hour access computer room. The new layout encourages interactive study by providing open, booth style group study spaces, influenced by our hospitality work.
