Project summary

As a learning facility that embraces the future of skills training in the building and construction industry and cyber security, TAFE NSW Meadowbank, Multi Trades Hub + Institute of Applied Technology – Digital is an exemplar of design. Situated in north-west Sydney, the design is sensitive to its sloping site and conceived as a structural grid, bifurcated by a multi-level linear atrium. Beneath a trapezoid roof, pod extensions have been incorporated on three sides of a functional cube and transparency is celebrated with large glazed areas protected by extensive cantilevers.

Visual sightlines throughout the interior of the four-level building promotes connectivity, the floorplates are flexible and able to be easily re-configured. The Hub is built on sandstone and the exterior façade is clad in a pattern of metal lengths.

With formal and informal spaces for engagement, social interaction between the school and local community is supported through the impressive architecture and design.
