Woods Bagot have completed the Burwood Highway Frontage Building at Melbourne’s Deakin University 

Designed by Woods Bagot for Deakin University in Melbourne, The Burwood Highway Frontage Building features academic research spaces for the University’s expanding Faculty of Health. The building comprises two interlocking shapes that form an ‘L’ configuration. The two parts of the ‘L’ shape are the Wing, which presents a gentle convex shape over four levels with a striking silver louvred façade, and the Tower, which is an eight level form clad in impressive gold louvres.

The architects state that the interior spaces are “more akin to today’s workplace environments than traditional academic centres.”

The design takes into consideration advances in contemporary workplace design, which provides flexible spaces for collaborative or individual working.

The building is also highly energy efficient with easily controlled local environment, under floor air distribution, active mass cooling, low energy usage, high water efficiency, solar hot water, solar shading, high levels of daylight penetration, rain water harvesting and cyclist facilities.

Value: $125M
