NEW CHANCELLERY FOR AN AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY: MEETING PLACE, WORKSPACE & ART GALLERY

Allen Jack + Cottier as Architects

Allen Jack+Cottier’s sophisticated new fi t-out for The Chancellery at Western Sydney University (WSU) takes workspace design to another level. It is an uplift ing, inspiring and active hub with sharp, clean lines, warm native timber, subtle lighting, beautiful artworks and contemporary furniture. This part administrative offi ce, gallery, and meeting place has been designed to refl ect the Chancellery’s pivotal role within the university, and its growing presence in the international academic community. Director (Architecture + Interiors) Scott Norton, who led the design team speaks of AJ+C’s approach, “Our starting point with good workplace design is that it has to work at a practical level, whilst refl ecting the vision and aspiration of our client. In this case, we were very fortunate that the Vice Chancellor clearly understood the value of good design.”
