Eastern Precinct Residences – Logan, Turner, Campbell & Holman Halls
Architect: Hayball & Robert Middleton Architects, McBride Charles Ryan, Jackson Clements Burrows, Taylor Cullity Lethlean (Landscape Architecture)
Monash University | MU29
Four striking residential halls shape the urban environment of the award-winning Eastern Precinct at Monash Clayton, and bring added vitality to the centre of campus. The halls provide sustainable and contemporary studio apartments for 1,000 students, with groundfloor spaces predominantly given to civic programs that contribute to the Monash Masterplan vision for a dynamic and activated campus. Ground-floor spaces are accessible to the broad campus community as study spaces, computer labs and diverse retail outlets. Each building achieves ‘5-Star Green Star As-Built’ certification and includes underground rainwaterharvesting tanks for use in toilets. Responding to University ambitions for architectural quality and diversity, four distinguished architects were appointed to deliver the buildings. Campbell and Holman Halls were collaboratively designed by Hayball and RMA, and occupy a prominent location adjacent Campus Park. The multi-award-winning Logan Hall, designed by McBride Charles Ryan provides a contributive selection of retail at ground, and delivers an engaging and vital architectural outcome on this prominent site. Turner Hall designed by Jackson Clements Burrows, comprises a mix of residential community spaces at ground and features a colourful façade of shading panels that create a distinctive feature of the precinct. Winner of the Australian Institute of Architects Vic Urban Design Award (2016).
