We are delighted that Boola Katitjin, Murdoch University‘s new academic building received the 2023 Daryl Jackson Award for Educational Architecture at last night’s National Architecture Awards! For us, the best bit of this project was working in collaboration with three great practices – LyonsOfficer Woods Architects and Silver Thomas Hanley (STH).

‘Boola Katitjin is a bold and transformative addition to Murdoch University’s Perth campus on Noongar Country. Its name – in Noongar language, Boola Katitjin means “many facets and many levels of learning” – aptly captures the layering and flexibility that this building offers…. It is no easy feat to bring together many design minds and achieve a clear solution, but Boola Katitjin is an exemplar,’ the jury said in their citation.

Congratulations to all involved, and in particular, Nick Juniper and Akira Monaghan from our studio.
