LatStudios, in partnership with DWP Architects, was engaged to transform an under-used green space at the arrival to the St Lucia University of Queensland campus, into a space that created a sense of arrival to the campus and provided gathering space and a new community garden.
The aim of the garden is to showcase the University of Queensland’s community & sustainability ethos. The site, located at the entrance to the campus serves as a formal arrival to the campus for visitors and presented an opportunity to consider branding and celebration of the campus. The success of the project lies in the transition between formal presentation and arrival experience, to that of the working garden. The project was successfully delivered in under a year to align with the university calendar.
