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.

The internet never sleeps! Here's the stuff you might have missed
Inner city Melbourne has many beautiful locales and highly sought after suburbs in which people want to live, but few are so pretty as the beachside suburb of Elwood. An established suburb, Elwood has become a hub for those who appreciate parklands and the beach while still wanting to immerse themselves in the social interaction to be found at nearby cafes, restaurants and speciality shops. And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
