Building A is the ’foundation’ building for Southern Cross University’s Gold Coast Campus …


February 2nd, 2010

Location: Gold Coast, Queensland

Type of development: Educational

Completed: Feb 2010

“Building A is the ‘foundation’ building for Southern Cross University’s Gold Coast Campus.

“The building is spread over four levels accommodating teaching spaces, library, IT labs, lecture theatre, academic offices and support facilities. The building is ‘permeable’ at ground level with co-location of a café, student interaction areas, student services hub and multi-purpose room.

“Fundamental to the Master Plan is the creation of a strong sense of arrival when travelling by vehicle, foot, cycle or light rail (future proposal).

“Building A establishes street presence along the primary frontage and the building, which is orientated to benefit from favourable coastal views, rehabilitated watercourse and biodiversity corridor.”
