Monash Business School
Architect: NH Architecture
Monash University | MU08
Established in 2014, Monash Business School is among the 1% of business schools in the world to have achieved ‘triple crown’ accreditation by the three major global accreditation bodies, and the only Group of Eight Australian university to have done so. The School’s new home at Monash Caulfield, is designed to bridge the gap between postgraduate education and the corporate environment. NH Architecture has designed the three-storey facility to suit the pioneering approach of the school. It incorporates a range of ‘Next Generation’ teaching and collaborative working and learning spaces. Previously segregated floor levels were transformed with the introduction of two interconnecting stairs: a timber-clad feature stair within the existing building and a new stair within the adjoining pavilion. Transparency and connection are maintained throughout with high-performing, acoustic, glazed partitions with patterns drawn from Australian currency. The arrival level is designed with the flexibility to transform from the traditional model of a corporate reception to a more informal meet and greet function space aligned with the expectations of corporate industry leaders. This flexibility can expand or contract using a new adjoining pavilion, reception, boardroom, and student lounge. The pavilion contains a 160-seat auditorium and repurposed outdoor terraces.
