Project Overview

Commendation - Category 3 An Education Initiative or a Design Solution for an Innovative Program

"The project set out to transform two existing tutorial rooms at the University SA Mawson Lakes Campus to provide a lab for outreach Sciences and Maths programs for years 9-12 with an emphasis on experiential learning capable of supporting variable curriculum.  Architects Russell & Yelland delivered a vibrant, creative, welcoming and comfortable learning space which engages multi-sensory learning through the use of stimulating colour and fixtures, a range of work areas that are flexible and visually stimulating and the provision of access to graphic and multi-sensory resources.

This project delivered a highly stimulating and diverse range of learning environments with a modest budget of a little over $300,000. It was well briefed and planned with the result being simple yet highly creative and inspiring space that is a strong enabler to teaching and learning activities appropriate for the 21st century.

Congratulations to Russell & Yelland Architects and the University of South Australia."
