Alumni House Newcastle

2020
Newcastle, NSW
 
 

Design of a new university building for the University of Newcastle in association with ARUP.

Alumni House is a landmark opportunity for the University of Newcastle to provide a forum for the development of a strong and influential alumni driven voice while engaging with the local community of Newcastle.

Located adjacent to the city’s central civic parkland, the site has the opportunity to promote the University of Newcastle through streetscape activation, regular public engagement, and a destination for prominent academic and community events.

Alumni House gives the University the opportunity to show respect for the city while projecting towards a vibrant future. To do this the scale and form of the new building balances the functional needs of the program with the civic responsibility embedded in the prominent site location.
