Our design for CSU’s new Engineering Building featured on PerspectiveGlobal

ThomsonAdsett has recently completed a new Engineering Building at Charles Sturt University, New South Wales

Encompassing views of Bathurst’s iconic Mount Panorama race circuit, the building accommodates the regional university’s unique new degree, which is designed to leave students equipped with both engineering and business skills. The design by ThomsonAdsett – an architecture firm with studios throughout Australia and Asia – meets both needs, by providing a pitching space for business activity and a maker studio, which embraces the ‘Maker Movement’ – a trend where discarded or broken goods are reimagined and marketed.

The firm developed a ‘Honeycomb of Learning’ – a spatial planning strategy which adds cohesion to the entire building. A range of clustered collaboration zones express the co-curricular and collaborative nature of the new learning environment.

The existing facility has been transformed with a gallery, technological wall, Honeycomb of Learning, maker studio, pitch space and labs, which encourage experimentation, partnerships and enterprise. Materials akin with regional farming and shed buildings have been employed throughout the project, creating a unique character for the facility. It is hoped that the new spaces will enable students to develop necessary skills and relationships, before undertaking the field study component of the innovative course.
