Monash Connect and C1 Learning & Cafe

Architect: Six Degrees

Monash University | MU02

Monash Connect, C1 Informal Learning and Café are the result of a comprehensive refurbishment of the ground level of two adjacent buildings at Monash Caulfield. Delivering a hub for student services and informal learning, significant demolition of the existing blindbrick façade was undertaken in order to introduce ground-level glazing and new entry points to activate these interfaces. Building B accommodates Monash Connect – the main student services interface for the campus, incorporating waiting areas, service pods, staff offices, meeting areas and amenities. An exhibition space and spiritual room complete the interior redevelopment. Building C hosts a combination of different functions: formal and casual student study areas, two prototype ‘collaborative learning spaces’, new offices for the Caulfield Campus Community team and the campus’ premier audiovisual conference facility. The Café services internal study areas and encourages spill-out to the Ian Potter Sculpture Court. Architects, Six Degrees incorporated a series of transparent façades and integrated seating along the building edge to open up the interior to the broader campus ground plane. Internal spaces are accentuated by a collage of colours and materials as well as textured stained-glass elements framed in black steel – a signature of the architects.
