A new project from Tony Owen Partners brings colour and intricate geometry to Sydney’s Boston University.
November 2nd, 2011
Tony Owen Partners has completed the Fractal Café in the Boston University Student Housing building in Sydney.
The ceiling geometry is derived from the fractal canyons which are the main environmental element in the building.
These canyons maximise solar access, natural ventilation and privacy for the students.
The ceiling geometry came from a photograph of the completed canyon windows and was interpreted here using orange plexiglass. This photo was also used as a super-graphic on the café wall.
