ThomsonAdsett as Architects

We were one of six selected architects invited to submit ideas for a major redevelopment of Griffith University’s Gold Coast campus library.

Our winning concept prioritises the needs of the student, staff and visitors, with an emphasis on innovative learning environments.

The design includes an experimental collaborative space, learning ‘aviary’ landscape,shared meeting room, seminar rooms, a laptop lounge, and feature sky lounge.

We’ve provided students with a range of learning settings both internally and externally. The prominence of the extension reestablishes the library as the campus heart

The design has been widely recognised for its cultural, academic and pedagogical values, winning the Overall CEFPI Winner 2014 for the entire Australasia region.

Awards CEFPI Australasia Overall Winner, 2014 CEFPI Australasia Region Winner of Refurbishment and Modernisation over $2M, 2014 Australian Institute of Architects Regional Commendation, 2014
