Southern Cross University, Building C

The design brief for Building C was based on a local indigenous word ‘Jingi-wala’ which means ‘welcome home’.

The local indigenous community used this land as a meeting spot, a connected space. The building is designed to connect the campus buildings with the people, community and culture of the region in a welcoming and inclusive space.

Coastal lifestyle is reflected in the colours, fabrics and natural timbers. Glass provides fluid connectivity of spaces with interconnecting views. The heart of the campus is the café and sunken garden, where friends meet and enjoy campus atmosphere.

The design of the library invokes a ‘beach house’, with colours and fabrics and natural timbers and glass that creates spaces that are welcoming, friendly and inclusive. Sustainable features include carpet made from recycled fishing nets from the Philippines.

The building won the Best Educational Facility over $10M category at the Gold Coast Master Builders Awards 2018.
