- The innovative environment is equipped to host multiple courses and to allow several classes to run simultaneously within the same area.
- Stacked, rectangular spaces for formal learning are perched between the tree-lined Royal Parade and the System Garden.
- Fluid and warmer casual areas form a seamless natural link between the garden and formal learning spaces.
- The renewal of the Tin Alley / Royal Parade corner of the campus – with its own small café and casual gathering spots – extends the collaborative, ground-floor informal learning space.
- A symbolically-rich façade – featuring a series of coloured, textured fins and sunshades that convey the building’s purpose – link all the spaces in one cohesive whole.
