Two new high profile buildings built at two sites in Victoria
This project involves two new high profile, interactive and contemporary buildings located over two sites: Parkville and Austin.
The Parkville building is designed to create a new high profile pedestrian/urban ‘gateway’ into the campus and build on the University of Melbourne’s important Royal Parade address.
The Parkville site comprises six levels, with four levels of underground carpark and rooftop plant room.
The ground floor houses all public spaces and loading areas. The first floor houses the executive and clinical spaces, with four inter-connected levels of office/laboratory accommodation for the Centre staff. The top floor is home to the animal house, comprising of 20,000 sqm.
The Heidelberg project is a new three level Austin building. The ground floor has been ‘cut and filled’ to provide a large single ground floor plane and accommodates the main centre foyer reception, public facilities, clinics suite and imaging facility.
