The update to Griffith University’s Nathan campus, designed by Phillips Smith Cornwell Architects embraces the culture of sustainability and environmental features throughout the five campuses. Located on the edge of native bushland, all campuses have unique site and built environment features.
Godfrey Hirst modular tiles were the ideal choice for a university home to world class expertise in the environment. The combination of Godfrey Hirst Base Plate Modular and Curriculum Modular tiles in assorted colours have created engaging spaces for study and compliment the brightly coloured furniture in the study stations.
In keeping with sustainable design practices Green Star 5 Star was used as a reference to establish the extensive environmental strategies for the building. All Godfrey Hirst Modular products, standard ranges or custom designs achieve Green Star maximum 100% points (5 Credits) on the MAT.
‘The N53 Refurbishment sought to reinvigorate an existing 1970’s building interior on the Griffith University’s Nathan Campus. The project incorporates a new integrated student services interface along with seminar, library and collaborative learning spaces.
The result is a visually enticing series of spaces with high durability to deal with the level of student traffic. The carpet tiles offered a modular design tool which was used as part of the way finding system and definition of different functions within the space. They also provided long lasting performance and ability for selective replacement as required.’ - Andrew Holmes of Phillips Smith Cornwell Architects.
