Murdoch New Academic Building

Case Study


Whajuk Nation

What did we do?

We are working as part of a team led by Lyons Architecture to design ‘The New Academic Building’ – 16000m² of contemporary collaborative learning space, informal peer-to-peer learning and academic workplace.


What is the impact?

The NAB will present a refreshed public face for the University, demonstrating their commitment to design innovation and sustainable practices. The ground plane has been left deliberately porous, making it accessible to students not directly participating in the building, and enhancing connections with the surrounding landscape. The new ‘Northern Event Space’ will provide weather protection for student activity.

Construction is due to start in EOY 2020.
