The Central Institute of Technology project consists of a 2,500sqm refurbishment of existing library and support spaces.
The design includes new flexible teaching spaces, dynamic casual breakout areas and support spaces. Along with these elements a new stair connecting Level 1 and Level 2 was incorporated, linking the new fit-out with the existing student services facility. The interconnecting stair now joins pivotal circulation spaces, whilst also alleviating congestion issues experienced with the existing lifts. A new entry is also provided adjoining the stair, creating a strong link from Museum Street through to the spaces on Level 2.
The introduction of the new stair, refurbishment of the internal courtyards and inclusion of highlight windows throughout allows natural light to penetrate deeper into the interior volume creating a more open and inviting environment.
A bold graphic concept runs throughout the fit-out aligning finishes and furnishing selections with the newly released CIT corporate branding.
