Text description provided by the architects. This project is the third stage in the redevelopment of South West TAFE’s Warrnambool Campus, and meditates between the civic space of the town, and the private interior space of the campus.

The primary circulation of the building is located on Timor Street, as an extension of the civic space – like the footpath repeated across three levels. This is combined with the concept of a self shading wall, which allows the street façade to be both shaded and transparent, making the circulation visible onto the street.

At an urban design scale, the rhythm of the façade geometry links up the street and the adjacent heritage buildings. Within the building, the internal circulation stairs are co-ordinated to the geometry of the façade, further amplifying the sensation of connecting the circulation with the street.

The building is entered via a glazed wall formed underneath the major circulation stair, and leads to the student service centre, and to the rear campus courtyard space.

From the foyer, the stairs rise up through the street wall to a series of spaces where students self organize into informally learning activities.
