With_Architecture Studio’s engagement as lead consultant involved managing a multi-disciplinary consultant team to deliver a strategic masterplan for the progressive development of the South Street campus in the context of the wider Activity Centre in which the grounds are located.
Murdoch’s South Street Campus is the University’s headquarters and home-base, and the campus environment is a major asset to the University’s image and brand. With the passage of time and Perth’s increasing population, the South Street Campus is now surrounded by an urban setting that will become increasingly denser. In response, the Strategic Masterplan guides the University in embracing this increasingly urban context, capitalising on the opportunities offered by now being adjacent a world-class health precinct and regional transport connections.
The masterplan aligns the transformation of the campus’s physical attributes and character with the University’s Strategic Vision and objectives, forges linkages with neighbouring institutions, and envisions a revitalized campus that is a distinctive, attractive, comfortable, legible and memorable place for students, academics and the community.
