Monash University Student Housing, Clayton, comprises two 5 storey buildings, each containing 300 student studios, flanking a central, common courtyard. Fundamental to the project was the need to create a community whilst supporting the individual; therefore, the courtyard is the meeting point and entry to each building. It refers to traditional college accommodation where students interact from private spaces to the common.

Shared spaces and vertical circulation are located at the centre of each building encouraging interaction. The main communal spaces are double storey volumes playing an important role in connecting all levels and defining the architectural composition. Each wing of the building has a cohort of 30 studios per level. Studios contain a kitchenette, ensuite and living/sleeping space. At 20m2 the studio module was refined to create a sense of spaciousness, incorporating extensive operable floor to ceiling windows and exposed ceilings 2.7 metres in height, with services contained at central risers.

nice mix of wood and concrete. Makes me think of Lois Kahn.
Love the wooden "sunscreen" of the community spaces.

Aus · April 25, 2012

The name of the firm is BVN, not BVM...
