Swinburne University of Technology Library
Jackson Architecture designed the refurbishment and extension
of the existing library and underground car park at the University’s
Hawthorn campus. The library occupies levels 1-4 with the
University Chancellery is located on level 7. Level 5 and 6 were
designed as an ‘Enterprise Incubator’ with the design flexibility to
allow configuration to meet the changing team requirements of
the University’s CRC research unit that takes academic concepts
into business realities.
The library provides a central learning hub for the University
community and the building introduced a new urban face and
address-point to the adjacent plaza that provides a major eastwest
pedestrian access for the campus.
